Its outside in my patio with morning sun. Prior to the spikes appearing, I was watering once a week and lightly fertilize. Now with the spikes attaining maturity with signs of buds appearing, i am at a loss on how to treat the Phal. I do not want to over water or over fertilize to cause the buds to drop..does anyone know how to handle this situation? These are my first spikes.

Just keep doing what you have been doing as far as watering. Change nothing.
