Orchid S.O.S.!

I hope someone has a happy ending for this gardening mishap!! I grew impatient staring at the brown orchid-less stalk of a phalenopsis that had bloomed months ago...and finally cut it off once a new flower spike had started.

BUT...after I cut off this long stalk (nice and juicy green inside, eek!), I finally noticed that a new flower spike was just starting half-way down the stem. It's now sitting in a glass of water, looking at me reproachfully.

Is there any way to start a new plant from this? Or is this just a lost cause?
