Q.Orchid Propagation

Anonymous added on March 6, 2014 | Answered

I have a mature orchid [5 years] with a new stem growing out of the base. A small plantlet has developed on the end of the stem, and a flower stem has developed out of the plantlet. It has seven blooms at present. Can this plantlet be severed from the parent plant and, if so, how?

This plantlet is called a keiki. This article will help you with seperating it from the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/orchids/orchid-keiki-care.htm
