    woah! whats going on here???

    theres something happening to my esseriana plant. the only thing i can think is the two ants i fed it a couple days ago might have something to do with it. other than that it's been growing just fine for like 3 years with a fertilizing mist every now and then. this is the only time i have fed it anything other than the occasional gnat or springtail that it catches on its own....

    Probably "browning heart disease" usually from fungus. Plant is probably a goner at this point. Take leaf pullings asap.

    Your plant has mutated into a brussel sprout.

    That seems about right for pullings.

    The roots look very healthy. Any signs of pests? Fungus gnat larvae perhaps? Have you sprayed the plant with anything: fertilizer, insecticides?

    I usually just lay the pullings out on the medium. The plantlets nearly always develop at the leaf base. I never tried "planting" the pullings before.

    some of the pullings had roots attatched so i figured that'd be the best way to do it.

    no signs of pests at all. and like i said, only misted with light fertilizer everynow and then and the occasional gnat or two.

    i blame the ants!

    what should i do about the exposed roots?
