    Default Top of new Dendrobium shoot changed the way it was growing

    I have a dendrobium that I have had 2 years now. Growing in the same place with same water and fertilizer routine. I have had 3 new stalks grow and bloom. After a bloom from a stalk the don't bloom again (yet). This summer a new stalk started to grow and then the leaves stopped it grew the stalk more and now a small cluster of leaves (not just one like I am used to) is growing in a different direction. Is this normal? I will try and attach pictures.

    It's a keiki most likely. Eventually it will grow roots and can be potted up or mounted. Happens frequently with Dendrobiums.

    I agreed with the above most of the time is keiki but at one point sometimes they produce flower buds when the light level and temperature relatively high. Dendrobium will produce more keikies when they are in stress.
