Can you tell me what to do with a keiki that has been left on the mother plant too long? The roots are more than 2 inches long. They are about seven inches. :(

That is ok, you can go ahead per the directions. The 2" roots are the minimum amount of roots you need to remove the Kieki. If you have more, this is not a problem.

Just in case you need it, here is the link to the article:
