    Default Can anyone please tell me what this is?

    Since my Dtps Firecracker has put out a terminal spike from its crown, there was an interesting growth from the bottom node. I am guessing this is the plant' reaction to a keiki paste I applied recently. Any idea what this might be? I am really hoping this is the keiki I was waiting for as I didn't want this plant to die off..Name:  image.jpeg

    Unusual appearance in reaction to the keiki paste, but yes, it should grow into a keiki (probably a cluster of keikis) given time.

    Thanks to everyone who has replied in this thread. More I look at it the more it looks like a cluster of keikis.
