Default An Update...

I'm amazed by how fast these little guys are growing!
They are sending out a few little roots as well.

Keep posting photos. I would love to see how they turn out.
Getting keikis is one of the things I really like about growing Dens.

Now all three keikis are about the same kize. Roots are increasing in both length and number. One of the keikis, although it is very tiny, started its own keiki or second growth on its base, shown in the second picture.

Looking good, they are growing so fast! Pretty soon they'll be ready for potting.

yes, they are growing quite fast. It is joy watching them!

On the other hand, the two rather large keikis that I took off the cane months ago are not doing anything.

Default An Update on growth

I finally placed the cane on some sphagnum moss in fear of breaking the little roots.

These little guys are growing faster and faster it seems.
The one on the left started out first, yet now it is the smallest one of the three.
The one in the middle, the last one to start out, is now the biggest one.
How interesting the growth hormone concentrate on the center growth.

With this speedy growth, I wouldn't be surprised to see some flowers this coming summer or fall.

can't wait!!!
