Is this an orchid baby?

Asked December 8, 2015, 9:26 AM EST

My orchid was a present on year ago. It has thrived. Now it appears a baby is growing sideways from it. Can a cut it off and plant it separately? At what size should I do this?

It is! Good for you for keeping your plant so happy.

You can cut the 'pup' or "keikis" (Hawaiian word for "baby") off and plant it.
If you do a search, you can find more info on how to do this.
