I read somewhere that one can get a Phal to rebloom a lot faster by finding a node on the previous spike. I was just wondering if it would work on my Phal-Denb, cause there i can see where all the old blooms grew from. As for my Phal, i don't have that option, cause the spike came out from the covered base...but it certainly has new vigorous growth.

Hardcane Dendrobiums will not rebloom from old spikes but they may grow new spikes from the top of older pseudobulbs/canes.

Spike will not rebloom.
