    Default Ascda. Motes Burning Sands 'mary motes' HCC/AOS

    This may have not been the smartest move I've ever made, but I had removed the keiki from my beautiful 'mary motes' burning sands. So far, both mama and separated baby seem to be doing just fine.

    Today, I was sort of rearranging the bark, and found this lurking!!

    Now, the question is, what is it? Is it a new root? Is it a new leaf? Doesn't look like a spike, does it? Since this keiki doesn't even resemble a strap leafed Vanda yet, I haven't a clue.

    Part of me is sorry I didn't wait and just leave it with its mama. There was a ribbon winner last week at the FLOS meeting, and that keiki was much larger and still left with the mother plant. The whole thing was just awesome!!

    Have patience with it. It will grow, but slowly for the first few years. (BTW - I like your tag hehe...)

    Cheers,

    I'm still learning alot about the keikei thing...and I'm finding it easier to leave them alone. lol I seem to kill the mother plant when I remove basal keikei's and often the babies don't make it due to neglect. lol Works better when I just leave well enough alone on my little porch.
