Need some opinions. I'm sure this is the place for that. Pictured are two views of my Sekkoku Dendrobium moniliforme. Should these kieki be left alone or made into new plants. And if removed, just where to cut.

Your choice Ted. II have some dens with keikis all over them and some that I plant in the same pot or a new pot. I tend to try to wiggle them apart but if it doesn't separate naturally I clip the part that is resistant.

I agree with Kathy. If there is room in the pot, I just put it in the same pot. It makes the plant look fuller.
