Emerging flower spike on hybrid orchid plant

I thought I'd share what a flower spike looks like when it just starts to emerge from the base of the bulb, nestled inside a few sets of leaves. Sometimes, when the bulbs aren't mature enough or have not received enough light or fertilizer to initiate budding, we only get a new growth instead of a flower spike.

When orchids are small and growing, I will often pot several plants together. This orchid should be Adaglossum Summit "Frenchtown" unless I mixed the tags!  Keep watching for an update of this plant with her blooms!
