I have three tall moth orchids, they finished flowering at end of April, but they started growing keikiss , I just left them growing and these are now flowering? Any info will be great fully received.

They can be potted up and grown as young plants or seedlings. Just make sure they have at least 3 roots of 3" in length. Then pot them up.
Use the edge of a nutter knife to "pop" them free from the bloom spike.

Thank you for your reply, How do I get them to grow roots? I did cut off the top part of the original stem leaving about 2 inches above the keikiss I have two smaller orchids I cut the stems at the base as they went brown, these plants are growing leaves.

The roots should form on their own when the first two leaves reach a 4-5" leafspread total.
Just takes patience.
