    Bruce,

    Didn't I read around here recently that some of the species will keiki till the cows come home, if their culture isn't quite right? And the post might have mentioned what was deficient, but I can't remember.

    LOL, I was just talking to my father on the phone, and at the end of the conversation I asked, "Why did I call?" He couldn't remember...

IT was weird because the spikes had a funny smell that I had not noticed before, but it is not like I cut off spikes very often. I will check it this weekend and see what the heck is going on with it now. It is light green, so it is getting enough light. The water and fertilizer is normal for a phal, but I cannot get it to go to bud.

    I almost cried cutting off all of the spikes. I am going to make that thing bloom or kill it trying.

    Ok, I will not cut off any more spikes. If it goes to keiki, I will let it happen.
