    Default Keiki or Not?

    This is a phal that has crown rot. I thought I'd give my Keiki Grow Plus a second chance at growing keikis...after all that's what it is supposed to do...right??? In the past about the only result I got was a new spike. I waited for weeks sometimes after the last flower opened and still all I got was spikes....thankful for that but not the intended result! So here I am again trying to save this little guy with potential keiki and this is how I'm of the pics is probably going on to become a spike. What do you guys and gals think about the others?????

    I would say that in the last two pictures, it appears to be a Keiki. I have used the paste on three of my Phals, and the ones like in the last two pictures look like the ones that turned out to be Keikis on mine.

    Good luck

    I agree that the last two photos appear to be the start of baby plants. Good luck!
