Thanks! Yours is gorgeous. I have one that is a younger plant than yours, I think. I purchased it two years ago, and it had not yet bloomed for the first time. It put out a spike with four...

Welcome to the OB! Good luck with your recent rescue. It's funny how one orchid seems to multiply for so many for us. :)

Can you explain what you mean by "bottom watering"? I'm guessing you may be referring to what is commonly called soaking, but I think we need to be sure. If that's the case, how far up the plant...

Welcome to the Orchid Board! I am unable to say for sure from that one photo. From what I can see, my guess would be a root, but it's possibly a spike. It's in the right place for a spike,...
