    All 5 of my Phalaenopsis Grocery Store NOIDS are spiking, and one has already started blooming. One of them just bloomed about 3 months ago, too.

    My Utrics, My unknown Dew, and one of my Echeverias...

    about a month ago I went to a local nursery and they were giving away 3 free "Paperwhite" bulbs as a thank-you to everybody who walked in that day. I shoved them into a bowl filled with glass beads, filled it with water until it was just touching the bottom of the bulbs (I also used a bit of maxsea here and there), and this is what I got!

    EDIT: P.S. Do not grow these unless you don't mind your house smelling like a funeral parlor for several days. Some folks claim it doesn't smell like that but...That is what my nose tells me!
    Same, I actually enjoy the strong scent though. I hope they can rebloom, as I heard they are grow n' toss-aways in colder climates.

    to be honest, I am surprised I have not yet killed them.

    Is your alarm clock blooming in the first picture?! And to actually contribute to the topic at hand: my Christmas Cactus, despite having a rough year, is currently blooming.

    Looks better than mines, which just sit there. . .I'd be happy to see at least a new root form.

    Nope, sadly Christmas cacti are cool, do you have a show full of little "firecrackers"?
