Orchid plants can sprout aerial shoots on back bulbs that lack leaves. Small plants develop there, especially if the plants are stressed by overwatering or drought. The canes can fail to bloom and may produce small plants where you would expect flower buds. In about 3 months, you can remove the plant with back bulb and pot it up. The roots that form in air must be nurtured in the transition to life in soil, so those new potted orchids will benefit from weekly watering with Hormex Liquid Concentrate mixed 1 teaspoon to a gallon of water.
