I cut the stem off my phal orchid and noticed nubs at the eye. Will this produce a keiki or a new shoot? I have it in a vase with sphagnum moss and it is growing longer...hoping for a keiki.



it could be either or an aerial root. can you add a photo?
A keiki would be brilliant. Only ever seen once. usually my plants swollen parts turn out to be more aerial roots.
welcome to GoY too :o)

In time it will reveal itself - that's the fun in growing orchids. Just keep doing whatever you're doing to it.
