Orchid spike stalled out?
Hi, I've searched around for a similar issue, and I don't see it. Any thoughts on what would cause a spike to stall? I've got this fairly thriving phal since last year, and I've been patiently waiting for a re-bloom. If you see the photo, you'll see the whitish-looking breakthrough on the right side: that's a spike. It's easier to identify as a spike from the other side, but it's got the little pointed mitten look that spikes have. It broke through about TWO WEEKS AGO! And nothing since! And I'm trying hard not to be pouty about this, but what the heck?!
And then, this past Thursday, I noticed the one on the left. That's also a spike. It's noticeably larger since I found it last week. And suddenly there's three other roots bursting out as well: two on this side and one on the other. So it looks like I'm going to get my flowers after all, but any ideas why that first spike quit on me?
