My orchid grew 2 leaves about Halfway up the stem and has since started growing air roots at the base of the leaves. The new leaves are extremely sticky as well. From what I’ve read on similar posts, this is a sign of a healthy plant and can be used to create a second Orchid by cutting and repotting.
My question is:
Is this intact a sign of a healthy plant?
If so, can this new leaf & air root growth be used to create a second plant?
If so, is the “second plant” ready to be cut from the parent Orchid and pot up?
Is there any risk to the Orchid if I decide to let it grow as is rather than cut the stem?
