    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    The growing point meristem is stretched out in a line instead of being just a single point.

    Until recently, I had a plant of Pinguicula rectifolia with a crestate growth pattern. I thought it was the ugliest plant in my collection. I uprooted it and used all the leaves for propagation purposes. Good riddance.

    I almost wonder if the apical meristem is mutated/mutilated in these crestate forms due to mite damage that takes place before it ever becomes apparent to us.

    Cheers,
    Corey
