Keiki advice Female
Default Keiki advice

Hi everyone! I did not know what this orchid was until I looked for it on this forum, I suspect it is the oerstedella centradenia. So I know what the procedure is for epiphytic orchid keikis but when and how should I repot these keikis? I understand it is a terrestrial plant so what mix must I use? Almost all of the keikis are blooming so I think I should leave them until they are finished blooming. Any advice on the treatment of the keikis and also the plant in general would be greatly appreciated.

Oooh! Such beautiful keikis. I would leave them be and bloom. Then leave them for a bit longer until they gain strengh and some good roots. Then try to twist them off gently, then repot. With keikis, the longer they can remain attached to the mother plant, the better chances of survival.

It is beutiful! One of the nicest of this species posted here.

This is its normal growth habit. It is an epiphyte, climbing all over the branches with this kind of growth. You can separate the growth when it becomes too big for you.
