This is as close as I’ve come to being a grandmother: My bouncing baby orchid keiki has flowered.
I reluctantly cut this keiki off the adult plant a couple of years ago.
But it has never looked quite as healthy as when it was attached to its mom. Yes, it looked O.K. But a couple of months ago it spiked, as did mom. It had some bud drop, but one bloom survived and now looks plump and healthy.
I’m such a proud grandma.
