    Default Is this a Phal Keiki?

    This leaf looking thing has been on the stem since the Phal started blooming 2 months ago. The blooms have now dropped and I want to cut the stem, but if this is a keiki I will leave it. Please tell me, are we having a baby Phal?

    Thanks,
    Dana

    Is that spike growing from the centre of the crown, or the side? I have two phals with terminal spikes (from the centre) and they both have leaves like that. The leaves are not keiki's, but I now have keiki's growing from inside those leaves lol
