Spike on Very small kiki...

Post by Kipper » Mon Dec 26, 2016 6:36 pm

Hi everyone. I removed a small kiki from a plant I have a couple of months ago. It is very healthy and had great roots and is doing very well. The thing is that it is still very small. Only three leaves, just over an inch long each. It is producing a spike and I am wondering if I should remove it or just let it go . Any thoughts?

I would let it go and see if it's going to be a spike or a keiki. Once you determine that then you can remove the spike or keep the keiki. This is just in case if the crown is damaged and this plant can grow via a new keiki.

That's what I'll do. Maybe it will be a cute spike with one flower...
