    My P. caerulea is making very interesting shaped leaves, which sort of pinch together at the ends. I've never seen this in any pics of this plant. Is it normal? Is the plant healthy? It seems to be making a flower (YAY) which is barely visible in the crown of the plant in the pic.

    I don't think so. When I originally got it, the leaves had really incurved margins, more like a normal plant. I think it's just the light that I have that is different, maybe less intense. Or soil or something.

    I've seen that growth quirke several times before, where the tips of the leaves seem to be folded back on themselves, until they unfurl, yet still keep that obvious fold, but I really don't know what causes it.

    Looks healthy, otherwise and a flower is a bonus.

    Now the only problem is the height of the flower. Oh, well, I'm sure it'll be ok. I'll post pics soon of the stalk if it really is a flower.

    could it be maybe a non leathal disease or fungus? because I remember there being something about some mexican pings having very different than normal leaves after a mite infestation or something like that.
