Keiki paste is something that I've always wanted to mess around with, but only recently did I find some that I could actually afford (read: it was cheap enough that I could play with it and if it didn't work, I hadn't invested a small fortune). So about 3 weeks ago, I got my little tub in the mail and set out to mangle a few of my phal spikes.
Here's what happened!
I'm not sure if this will become a subspike of new flowers, or an actual keiki (apparently keiki paste can induce both). I'm actually leaning towards keiki since subspikes on this particular phal start out a dark purple color, whereas this mystery nubbin is definitely a light green. Either way, I'm just excited there's SOMETHING going on :)
