I'm a newbie to orchid cactus. I just picked up a small one at my favorite greenhouse. It's growing like crazy! I noticed these four growths on the middle stem, that appear to be roots. Is that correct? I do not know the growth habit of orchid cactuses, so how do they bloom- is this a sign that it's thinking about budding, or is it just a normal growth habit? Eventually I will hang the cactus so it can do it's thing, when it gets a little bigger. Thanks in advance Thumbs up
