    Ahhh, another one to add to the list. Again, another demonstration of the fact that sepals are modified leaves. Sometimes these root, sometimes not. I would wait a bit, and then bend the scape down to the substrate, anchoring it so the plantlett has contact with the substrate.

    It's a fairly common event if you grow lots of them.
