No Roots on Keiki -- what now?

No Roots on Keiki -- what now?

am 16.07.2006 17:07:54 von news

Hi folks. Using the KiekiGrow product, I was successful in getting a
fantastic, 3+ leave keiki growing on one of my favorite phal's; however, its
been growing on the (now flowerless) spike for several months and STILL NO
ROOTS!

I'm perplexed. I needs roots before I can separate it, right?

Do I need to try air-layering with spag. moss to encourage roots?...or just
sit tight?

TIA,
David

Just wait. They'll grow eventually. May take a while.

Plant Hormones Canada also sells Keiki-Root...

Another thing to consider is mixing up a teaspoon per gallon of K-L-N or
SuperThrive and "painting" the plant with it.
