My kingianum has multiple growths, 8 or so, but is only about 4 inches tall. I'm not sure if it is a baby or if it is a smaller growing clone. I guess if I can bloom it, that will answer the question!

I picked up a keiki from the floor of the greenhouse this Spring, potted it up, and it seems to be doing fine. Thanks for the growing/blooming tips. I'll give them a try, also.

Yours is really sweet, Todd.

Congrats Joanne on your new kingianum. I grow some mounted, but most are in pots of mixed fine bark, perlite and charcoal. I often root the keikeis in sphagnum but move them to a more general mixed once they are well-rooted. I will start the drying-off period in the next week or so (early October). They are naturally growing cooler now that the nights have starting chilling down. Keep your light a little higher during this cooler-drier period to maximize flowering.
