    Smile Removing keiki on dendrobium orchid

    Hi Guys,

    I was given 3 dendrobium keikis by a senior orchid grower few months ago. Unfortunately, due to my ignorance at that time I almost killed them by packing in moss on top of the pots, the little plants were actually very nicely planted by him using charcoal, brick and coco husk chips. Dont know what I was thinking...

    Anyway, later I repotted them using similar potting material as the original has become stale due to the moss accumulating water and getting soggy. The plants recovered and one of them bloomed and one had 2 little keikis as a result of the stress I put them through.

    So, what I want to know from senior members is whether I should remove this keiki now. The plant itself is pretty small still but is throwing up a new cane and has new root growth in the pot.

    Thanks in advance!
