I purchased this primary hybrid at a small show here in West Palm Beach, which had six small spikes at the time (Sept 2019). There’s a video down the index on that day of purchase. Be safe, everybody. 💚
Been busy with a few neighbors who live alone and running around not paying too much attention to the orchids… and just noticed this today. They’re right on schedule, too. Take care and be safe… 💙💚💛💜❤
Both spikes are well over two meters tall and still stretching without the first sign of any buds.

I actually bought this on November 3, 2019, and not September.
Phoenix canariensis… Planted this in 1980, as a 3-gallon container.
Plant has between 28-31 spikes.
So far there is still a minimum of 28 spikes; though still the possibility of up to three more recent spikes.
