Then there is the Dpts. I had to have, after Bud posted pictures of his. It has two spikes.
Wils. Spacemine 'Red Rendevous' bought in bloom in March, has 2 spikes.
In May I bought Milt. Andrea West 'HOF' HCC/AOS in bloom. The flowers were almost spent and now there are two spikes. One spike was stuck in the leaf and I had to free it.
Oh, I forgot my Haraella odorata, 2 spikes.
Psychopsis Mendenhall 'Hildos' and Paph. Pinocchio (a.k.a. Energizer Bunnies) are still going strong.
I am over the moon, but puzzled over the "outbreak" of spikes, especially the Neo. I changed nothing, same water, same location, same fertilizer. No matter, I am doing the happy dance!
On Thursday I had the sudden urge to go to Walmart. Odd! I headed straight for the corner with the house plants, grabbed her and left without buying anything else. Got home and repotted right away. The roots were, surprisingly enough, in good shape. There was printing on the pot she was in, a series of numbers and Elegance Deborah.
The color in the picture is the true color.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm so exited about my spikes.
My sister (also an orchid enthusiast) thinks I am a nut, but I think they "talk" to each other. Her's are always in spike. None of mine are spiking despite great conditions (I think!); again, I think they all know what the other one is doing.

I am thrilled for you!

That is great to learn - my apartment has all west windows and this will be my first summer in this location. Do you have to move them away from the window in the summer in the later afternoon? My orchids kind of have to make do with me too but they've been putting on a great show this week after some warm days. Congrats on all the spikes!
