    Last February (2018), I bought this plant at an orchid show. Within a month it was showing 2 new growths (actually, 3, but the 3rd one dried up) that at first I thought were flower spikes but which turned out to be new bulbs. I just noticed 2 new growths, photos attached, and am hoping these are flower spikes, although 2 at once seems unlikely? These growths seem skinnier than last year's, and I think would suggest flower spikes, but that could be wishful thinking. What do you experts think? :rolleyes: Thanks! psychopsis 2 (2).JPG psychopsis (2).JPG

    They look like spikes to me. Enjoy!
