Hello and thanks for taking the time to read this! I have owned a purple phalaenopsis for about 12 months. It was given to me while in bloom and over the past year, it has been watered every 10-14 days with 1/2 strength orchid fertilizer (except over the past 2-3 months using just tap water). I have been uncertain of where to put it in my home because the only window with decent sun exposure is near a heater (which was in use over the winter months). This is a summary of its "history": see photo with labels - Fall 2005: finished blooming, main stalk was cut and sealed with wax, left by window w/o direct sun - early Winter 2005/6: second growth began, 2 stalks emerged with new leaf, new flower buds formed - mid Winter 2005/6: had to turn heater on, flower buds began to dry up, leaf became slightly scorched at tip so moved away to cool area, no further growth and buds fell off so cut secondary stalks and sealed with wax - late Winter 2005/6: moved back to near heater (but w/o direct sun) - early Spring 2006: growth of keikis (leaves only) began - mid Spring 2006: 2 leaves at keikis, something ?stalk vs root emerging from keikis, heater is now turned off - currently, new leaves emerging from keikis and basal leaves, plus ?new roots at base So...my main questions are: 1. Is the keikis growing a stalk or root? 2. Are roots now growing below at the basal leaves? 3. What should I be doing to best care for my orchid and keikis? In particular, should I be giving it more sun? restarting my orchid fertilizer? misting the keikis? I would appreciate any expert help!
