PROPAGATIO­N

-

The easiest way to propagate phalaenops­is orchids is by planting their keikis: small plantlets that sometimes develop on their flower stems. Once the keiki has several leaves and a few roots, it can be cut from the parental stalk and potted up on its own. “If the keiki is left on the mother plant, it may prevent it from flowering again until it is removed,” says Sara. “Having said that, I have seen the main plant and keiki both flowering away happily at the same time.”
