So my roommate has a bunch of these orchids, and I keep seeing these little spindly monocot sprout-looking things poke up out of one of his pots. (I don't remember the genus... it's one with thin roots, oblong, tapering leaves and upright psuedobulbs. The flowers are small and have that apron-looking lower petal.) I don't know too much about orchids, but I'm pretty sure these are seedlings. I was really thrilled to see them growing out-of-culture. The only problem is, they wilt and die before I have a chance to point them out to my roomie!
It's right in the center there.
Does anyone know if this is indeed a seedling? What kind of care do they require? What should I tell my roommate to do with it?
