I'm doing something wrong with this one. My plant's beautiful, great roots, no buds in sight...

I have an Amesiella monticola
It is been having a spike before the Christmas(less than one inch), then the cold hit, and the spike now just stops growing; instead, I can see new roots and new leaf coming out.

my angraecum didieri has the same problem, roots are growing crazy but the spike just stop.

Does anyone know why? Will they start growing again?
Does it help if I give them some orchid food for bloom?

thanks

The spikes should start growing again when the weather warms up. I wouldn't push the fertilizer at this point. Didieri bloomed for me in late spring and summer.
Monticola will probably bloom first.

A drop in temperature frequently causes a spike to stall. I have a Phal. bellina that stalled due to cold weather about one year ago. After several months of warmer weather, the spike took off and has been either in flower or in bud ever since.

By the way, I agree about not trying to push it with fertilizer; let the warmer temperature do the job.

Beautiful plants, Peter. I assume you will use them in the pod position when crossing with Phal. gigantea? :lol: :lol:
