Will let you know if it's a flower spike though!! Apparently it is possible for them to produce roots...
It is possible that the Ebay seller got it this year from northern hemisphere (maybe even directly from Sunset Valley Orchids) If so, it will go through a slightly confused transition, but it will do fine.
