Sorry Yew-Sung, what do you mean with "new terminal shoot"?
I'm pretty sure now it's a keiki. When I had a look this morning, I could already see two leaves separating. If I can, I'll take a picture when I get home for lunch.
"anak" for sure catttan
Yeah, I think so
This is how it looked yesterday. Picture taken from another angle. I think it's clearer now tha it is a keiki and not a spike (alas)
100% you are right Jesus how many keiki? usually it will produce sometimes more than one including at the base of the plant.
Just one for now.
Looking at your photo, I would say 100% that one is a new plant, not a spike at all. This happens all the time with my vandas which had crown rot, or those which were top-cut. And I've never had a vanda with crown rot bloom after the top has died off.
I sure hope mine will eventually bloom. I got this one from a friend with crown rot. I could ask her what color it was, but I'd rather see it for myself. Will this keiki produce roots of it's own?
