Has anyone come across the spikes of their vanda getting stuck between the leaves when it emerges?

Ive seen it happen to my V. Chao phraya and insignis.

rarely happened before. Usually I gently pull it out when spike is a little bit longer if still stuck.

Cut the spike, let it regrow another one.

Stuck as in can see the spike node emitting but then stop growing and yet still green green?

My Vanda Muang Thong also like that. 1 month liao, the 2" spike stopped growing but still green.
The vanda like cannot decide whether wanna channel energy to flowering or growing. :ninja:/>/>

*edited*
I have 1 more mokara and aranda noorah also like that.
The mokara got double spikes, then stopped growing after 1". Is it due to light intensity (Lack of?)?
The aranda I can see the spike node, but refused to grow anymore.

Usually if wait too long such spikes will "stillborn" and abort right? :ninja:/> :ninja:/>
