    My phal had some issues and had some root die back and dehydrated well a few weeks ago (probably more like a month or 2 now) I noticed something trying to poke out from the stem. I thought it was a keiki because their isn't 2 leaves up from it but now that its growing it looks more like a flower stem. I havn't seen keikis forming only ones that have leafed out and that has been only online..

    Thank you for any and all help!

    It looks more like an inflorescence to me. Time will tell.
