    If you Phalaenopsis Orchid sprouts leaves at the end of it's spike, this is plant growing a new 'baby'!
    They are called 'keikis' which is actually the Hawaiian word for baby.

    This actually is quite common. Keikis grow quickly and began to sprout more leaves and then aerial roots. When at least 2 to 3 roots are 3 to 4 " long, it can be cut from the mother plant and planted in it's own pot.
