Dark Roots and New Pair of Leaves at Base

Two Questions:

Are the orchid roots rotting? I repotted the orchid a year and a half ago with repotme’s Phalaenopsis Dark Classic Orchid Mix. Ever since I did that, most of the roots died. And any new roots that went into the substrate would form dark marks. I only water the plant whenever the coconut husks look dry, so I don’t think I am overwatering it.

Is the orchid forming a keiki? I have seen pictures of keikis forming on a long spike. But this one is at the base.
