Yeah, after watching that last video, I don't think your heart could take all those spikes waving everywhere. For all of our sakes, wait.

oh! i had no idea my video Last Will was in the album with the repot video! WHEW. it’s out now.
glad you mentioned the repot video, i went to check it.

oh my. thanks!
____
update: i decided i had to take more action as my spike (second blooming) is sweeping into the leaves and near the ground... as well as tipping the orchid over!
i stretched out the ‘wire’ support (next time i see i could shape it to hide it better — trace the spike).
i put/wedged ‘mom’s rock’ down the side of a larger pot and wedged phal in there, working well.

otoh: maybe i should go ahead and repot. hello

Well, heck Tedro... I missed seeing Last Will. LOL... so I guess your secret's safe.

That looks pretty sturdy. Leave it alone to do its thing now. Wait and repot after it's finished. Hasn't been that long since you repotted, so I'm sure the medium is fine for now.

this took all the fert i could give it.
i do 1.5x full flush; plain water 2x3.
one flower left on second branch — that one didn’t push out but 2 or 3 second growth blooms, maybe only 2.
most of spike (1st) flowers have fallen.
many 2nd blooms have bloomed, what you perhaps can see are holdouts longest and likely last — as i will not (i think) trim away any of branches after last flower falls.
however, if spike looks eager, i may. and if no new veg (roots; leaves) is appearing; no old leafs are yellowing... yet.

there are 4 buds each on spike and first branch, the ones on the tips are tiny...1 kinda near opening... 2 other buds. all still growing, slooowly.

this pot in a pot with a rock to hold it...
changed the humidity, wetness, i’m sure — despite the orchid pot bottom, somewhat suspended in air, now receiving more air flow. i thought i better watch dryness.

i water/feed, basically, every 3 days.
however, now, all the above in effect — including stage of plant — too much water it too easy now, i “feel.”
being a hardy plant, i think better to err on the dry side until through finish and shift (to veg, or whatever else!).

i think 🤔 she’s (?) a bit tired.

i also think “we” almost shocked one of the big buds — my light clock did/does not change but the window light did .

temp kinda hot & cool, etc. a time to be more careful.

thanks!

A most miraculous phal Tedro! Yes, a fresh start next go-round. Your care for taking care of it, having it bloom, then bloom again, have been awesome to watch. Here's to new leaves and growth!
