Keiki Paste
Default Keiki Paste

Hey there- I have grown Phals for awhile now, and am curious about propagating them by putting keiki paste on plans nodes. I have done quite a bit of research on this and am finally ready to try!

My question is keiki paste the ONLY thing you can use to get a keiki to grow? Or would it be possible to use some kind of "take root"? Or can you use nothing and still have a keiki to grow from the node if a new flower spike doest appear there?

Keikis can and do appear spontaneously. Some orchids are keiki machines, others are less prone to them.

You might search for "keiki paste recipe". I have heard of coconut water possibly being used, as well as hormone products - usually these are mixed with lanolin, which just serves to hold the other product in place.

Good luck!

Where ever you go, there you are ...

Keiki Paste

Since attempting to propagate at a plant node is not standard, I would recommend using keiki paste and not a recipe someone said would work. If you don't get results, you won't know what the cause was.
I have successfully used keiki paste to start new growth at the crown and flower stalk node after 20 months of no growth of either on a mini-phalaenopsis.
