Hi experts, you have such beautiful orchids!

Yesterday I found out that one of my phals has crown rot, all its leaves fell off :( A moment later I saw this on another, healthy phal. Is this a keiki?? Or just new leaves on a weird spot?

Hi all,
Is this a keiki?? Or just new leaves on a weird spot?
Although they are monopodial, they do occasionally branch. You need to let the new stem get quite large (at least three leaves) before you divide it into two.

It may grow back from a dormant bud.
The old leaves stayed green (and I nearly binned it a couple of times), but after 3 years it eventually grew a new leaf rosette from further back along the caudex.

Stunning. We never have much luck with orchids. Is it true you completely let them dry out then generously water?Maybe incorrect feeding or lack of humidity in our case
