    Default Keiki Galore!

    No, this isn't a character from an up-coming James Bond movie!!! Thought I'd post a follow-up on the progress of my Keiki-Grow Plus trials. When I began using this lanolin based paste, all I would ever get was spike growth....well, I'm all growd up and look what happened....these are chids only a mother could love......I just hope and pray that the mother plant lives long enough for these guys to grow some roots...



    This one and the next pic of different plants have 3 keikis growing from the same loaction!





    And here is a flower spike and keiki!

    Wow. I'd say you are having some luck! I hope you start getting some roots on those beauties soon too!

    Cheers,

    The only reason I did this is an effort to save the phals that I caused to get crown rot!
