This orchid has literally done NOTHING for the last year. It looks almost exactly how it did when I got it. It is the top piece with 2 keikis attached from the mother plant that has been rooted and has done well. Except that lately there is something growing from it. Could these be spikes or are they keikis off the keikis?

I will certainly keep you all informed of how it is doing. The spikes are so tiny! They are maybe as thick as a toothpick.

Stelios, thanks for the preview.
