Good evening / morning all. Something that has puzzled me for years is,
"Why, when you have 2 to 5 maturing to flowering size growths on a Phrag plant, that only one puts up a flower spike and at almost the time the flowers are opening, maybe, just maybe, one other growth puts up a flower spike".
How do I get my plants to multi - spike or put up more spike at the one time.
Roy.

good question. I don't have an answer but am curious as well. Last year one of my Phrags started 7 new growths. I was excited with the thought of 7 spikes this year but instead I only have 2 spikes. If it light, lack of fertization?? Hope someone has an answer to this
