Roberta and SP, thanks for the input!

I apparently overthought things while I was repotting or I was just trying to get it out and back in with minimal damage! I'll let it ride and see what happens.

Forgot to mention, the already established spike is starting to form a bud, so that's pretty exciting as well!

True Roberta ...... but some orchids - like oncidiums - tend to grow out in all directions. Clustering or clumping types.

In this link here - when the new growth is included, the pattern is tending toward a diamond sort of formation. So for this case here - the movement doesn't appear to be along a line.

With only 2 old growths, that plant is likely to on grow in one direction, so Iíll vote with Roberta on this one. Given time and good culture, then itíll start to spread.
