    Hi! I'm Brynn, pronounced like Lynn. My husband and I along with two small dogs live in Fort Myers, Florida.
    I'm a beginner with orchids but have had some pretty good luck. They are very happy outdoors here on our lanai. My oldest plant grew a Reiki about two years ago to my delight. Now it is presenting with what looks like a double bloom. What is going on???

    I would appreciate your info! Thanks.

    Unless you’re treating the plant with something that has caused a mutation, that’s probably nothing more than a one-off freak occurrence.

    Keiki (pronounced “Kay-kee”, and Hawaiian for “baby”) formation is fairly common in phals. As soon as the thing has about 4” of total root length, it can be removed from the flower spike and potted up.
