    I've had that on one of my hybrid Dends. It did not produce a keiki just an inflorescence.

    i have seem it before and label it as adventitious roots on an inflorescence....it has never hapopened to me but i heard it is an imbalance with too much nitrogen and several times i saw it was the result of damaged roots and dead roots in the parent plants pot...cant say if that is the case with u

    actually it has an abundant amount of roots and air roots, I will update what will happen when the bloom goes.
