    Hello m9mike9,
    I'm sorry but I'm going to make a correction here. Top right picture is not a keiki. There is a difference between a keiki and a shoot. Keikis grow from buds on the cane, usually the upper portion. For instance, on Dendrobiums you’ll find the keiki growing along the length of the cane or at the end. Shoots, on the other hand, are produced at the base of plants near the point where the canes come together.
