Default Odd ball propagation

When you have been around orchids for a long time (since 1968 in my case), occasionally you run into something 'odd'. As a local AOS judge puts it: 'Orchids do not read the books'

Here are 3 examples.
  1. A Zygopetalum back-bulb division, which produced a new growth where I least expected it.
  2. A Vandoglossum, which produces a keiki at the tip of most inflorescences (at least 4 out of 5).
  3. And todays entrant: a Laeliocattleya producing a twin growth from a single 'eye'.

I bought 75 reedstem Epidendrum meristems & seedlings back in April. Today I noticed that one, in addition to producing a new lead, had also split one of the previous stems. Sorta a 'Siamese twin' development. Never seen that one before.
