    Default Den. moniliforme 'Yamatomishiki' spike?

    This is one of my recent acquisitions. They started producing keikis and new growths as soon as I got them. I couldn't telll if this is just another keiki or a spike. I included a keiki pic for reference.

    Looks like they sent you a half dead plant. I'd be getting ahold of the vendor! Of course, you can attach the whole cane, keikei and all to a nice stick to grow. But that will take a few years before they bloom for you. How long was it in a box? Poor thing...mine only look like that after months of bad treatment! lol

    Half dead??? Ouch, I thought they were deciduous since 3 of the 4 didn't have any leaves but had good roots. I actually got them from a member of another forum and were shipped quickly.
