    Good day to you all.

    Refu, this is how my Phal. has gone after trying the Keiki Grow on my beautiful Harlequin Phal. I started in Sept.-Oct. last year, and now at this date, this is how they look. I hope I don't lose the mother plant, she is looking pretty sad. I really don't think it is worth it. The secondt picture shows 1 root about 1 inch long. I have to wait until more roots shoot out, before I can pot off. But they do look a bit weird!! Any comments anyone?

    i feel keikis are natural response of the plant when it is under stress and mother plant under threat of survival.does a healthy plant give out keikis?because in nature plants should be preferring sexual reproduction.kekikis may not be always a good sign

    i had a dying mother plant which gave out keikis.the keiki survived and mp died.so now if i see a keiki i check the mother plant for problems
