Yes, my orchid did that...I found out the new plants were called 'keiki' - allow the plantlet (or Keiki) to get to a nice, strong plantlet with several leaves & roots, gently remove from the main stem, I did this by cutting through the stem & just shortening the cut stem so that I didn't damage the roots/leaves & plant in orchid compost in a clear flower pot.  Mine is growing very nicely, a bonus would be to see a flower spike emerging  :)

Thanks for the advice I'll leave them to grow a bit larger before I plant them on.
