M. don quijote will rebloom over and over on the same spike (sometimes over a period of years).  Don't cut the spike off unless it turns crispy brown.  It usually blooms sequentially, one bloom at a time.

  Subject: [pleurothallid-l] don quijote spike


     several months ago, I had a spike on my masd. don quijote and got all excited and what not, even to the point of starting a few forum threads on the origin of the name...
    Well, the spike then arrested.  It stopped growing, and got a bit black on the end, and I expected it to die off... But it didn't.
    That was six months ago.   
  I didn't cut it off, I just left it, waiting to see what it would do. 
     Well, the other day, I noticed it is growing again...  The blackened part has been pushed aside, and the bud seems to be back in business.
     My question -  has anyone seen this before, ? What should I expect?  This isn't a masd. keiki, is it?
