Just about a month ago, I posted about a couple of my Phals that were beginning to spike. Well, when I was watering my orchids this week I found THREE more Phals with spikes starting to poke out!
The first is a pretty creamy white-and-burgundy harlequin Phal, whose spike has that telltale mitten shape:
The next is a big Phal with beautiful yellow blooms that I bought at Lowe’s about 2 1/2 years ago! I can tell that it’s a spike because the tip is pointy rather than round the way this orchid’s roots usually are.
And last but not least, one of my Phal keikis is also showing signs of a new spike…it’s so new that it’s a little hard to see, but the spike is the small yellowish-looking growth nestled at the base on the left in this image:
The other two orchids in spike are coming along nicely, so I expect I’ll have some gorgeous blooms in the next couple of months!
