    Default Cattleya Keiki

    Some of you may recall I posted a picture of one of my cattleya that was growing a keiki where one would have expected a flower.




    Well, today I followed your advice and grabbed the base of the little guy and plucked him right out of his home. The roots were going every which way and I just couldn't wait any longer. So here are some follow-up pictures....

    What a strange little guy. Nice repotting job...i'm guessing it'll settle in and bloom for you soon. It looks so healthy!

    Nice ! The Epidendrum lineage must have prompted the Keiki production. Easy way to expand ones collection.
