Congrats on all the spikes! If that first photo is a Cattleya as it looks to me, then that would be a new growth. The spikes come from the centre of the leaf or leaves. Sometimes in a sheath and other times not. New growths are good too!

Excellent!

I agree with silken about the first photo - looks like a new growth!

Good growing!!! Please post pics when they bloom.

Isn't it funny how you can get so excited by these little nubbins that grow taller day-by-day? Enjoy!
