    This is a lovely little yellow harlequin. It's a blooming keiki that was recently removed from the mother plant.

    I love harlequins! You say it's a keiki; in general, do you remove these because you want to or because you need to?

    Both, Lynda. They're genetic dupes of the parent plant that live off the parent plant as they develop their own leaves first and then roots later. They can tax momma and possibly kill her if left on too long. But some plants are work horses and don't mind supporting multiple keikis, flower spikes, and small villages. Totally depends on the individual plant. You usually don't remove one until there are two or more roots at least two inches long. The lil' guy has to sustain itself once removed!

    Many genera don't produce keikis, and many species within a genus don't. Again, it just depends. Dends and Phals are classic keiki genera, but lots of oddball genera produce them as well.

    I don't own the mother plant on this one, so if you'd like a keiki from me, you'll have to wait till it grows a lot bigger. But it clearly shows it's from a keiki-loving parent!
