Mini phals won't spike...

Sheila(8b SW Texas)March 31, 2010

P. Sogo tris & P. Brother Spring DAncer. I got them last year for Mother's Day. All my other phals are either in bloom or spike, but not these two. Is their culture different than for standard phals? I was excited earlier about Sogo tris, thought it was sending up three spikes. Within a couple weeks I realized the spikes were actually basal kiekis, so now Sogo tris has become a 'bush'! Any thoughts on getting these two plants to spike?

The smaller phals take the same care as a large phal. Yours could be down from summer bloomers or they can be taking a year off.

If the plant looks good and the roots are good, you'll be fine.
