Nicely done!

These are tricky for me. I can get them to spike but they are quick to blast.
This is a first bloom, I have another one that blasted last year grown indoors. This one had cool nights, night time temps are set on 59 degrees, some daytime tamps reached 85.
Indoor temps didn’t fluctuate as much…

Tell me about it!
I also have malipoense spike rather easily but then after many long months' wait, the bud drops off just as it start to open up. This happened for two three years in a row. Then, that plant finally bloomed last spring with a huge fragrant flower! :)
Unfortunately, mine is still a very slow grower. I'd be lucky to see this current new growth spike later this year. I doubt it.
I have a large seedling that will most likely to spike in the late summer. I'm looking forward to it.
Good luck with yours!
