Default Angraecum diderii

I received this plant from Hausermann Wednesday. I am considering mounting this one, but before I do I have questions. Upon close inspection I noticed two nubs growing from a lower portion of the stem. First, could they be spikes? I have never owned this species before. Second, would changing the culture now have negative consequences on these blooms, if that is indeed what they are? If so, I will leave it like it is, in its original pot and sitting on a bed of moss inside another pot.

I'm growing my first African orchid, Cyrtorchis chailluana, and see something that resembles your pix. It threw out new roots and leaves so I'm pretty sure it's a spike. Growing on cork mount, a bit of s/m and under lights. Fun!

I'd leave it "as is" until they nubs grow enough that you can tell whether spike or roots. Yes, then mount it! I wanna see that smaller tent become an automister tent!
Caveat: Everything suggested is based on my environment and culture. Please adjust accordingly.

I only got mine a couple months ago, but I chose to mount it and it seems happy with that. I do grow it in a tent with a mister! Those could be buds, I think mine looked like that but now it is looking more clearly like a bud. Could be a basal growths though.
