One of mine removed earlier in the year (see picture below) that has done very well since removal was above the highest leaf on the cane..
Both of these came from a den Oriental Smile. The roots have started to grow from under the bark, up and out of the pot. I take this as a good sign for these keiki's. No scale (not the bugs) to the image but the pot is a 2 inch round pot.

Mine is a nobile and yours doesn't look like that type.
