Keiki Power Pro stimulates orchids (and many other plants!) to produce new shoots — also called “keikis” from the Hawaiian word for “baby”. These keikis are genetically identical to the mother plant, which means that you can clone your prized orchid plants to give as a gift, sell to another orchid junkie, or simply make a “backup” copy in case an infection or your cat kills the original.read more
All plants respond to biochemical signals that cause them to do different things, such as growing a new leaf, putting up a flower, extending a root, or making a new growth (keiki).
One biochemical signalling phenomenon, called “apical dominance”, occurs when cells at the growing tip of a plant (e.g., a flower spike) produce a biochemical hormone (called an “auxin”) that suppresses the growth of new shoots elsewhere on the plant.read more
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?
In general, a few weeks. Your results will depend on the type of orchid, condition of the plant, season, growth environment, etc.
WHY SHOULD I USE IT?
If you have a plant that you really care about, making a keiki from it is a great way to ensure that you have a “backup” plant, just in case your main plant gets infected or dies.read more
