How long does it take a phalaenopsis spike to grow?
I don't think Im being impatient, really. After having put my orchids outside last summer, some of them finally started to grow a spike after a couple years of never re-spiking after I bought them. I was delighted to see spikes growing. Now, though, months and months after I brought them inside, one of the biggest, heartiest seeming spikes (the others were thin and spindly looking and never actually flowered) seems to have stopped growing. I know it takes a long time, but this seems to be a *really* long time. I almost want to say that brought them in around October, and 6 months later its still about half as long as it should be, and it doesn't seem to have gained an inch in 2-3 months. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it, only that it is stunted.
It is in a sunny window with sunlight filtered by a curtain, planted in sphagnum moss, everything else on the orchid is fine, leaves, roots, etc.
Here is a picture:
Am I just being impaitent? Will it ever grow?
