    Thanks Plant Planter. I`m not sure what to call this type of division - i`ve heard it likened to meiosis and even binary fission, but i`m still not sure what the proper terminology would be.

    Nevertheless, it is exciting to see happen.

    Time for an update on the cristate P. jaumavensis.

    Here are some pics from May 21, 2013 showing the larger mother and the smaller daughter ping.












    A pic of the smaller daughter ping on May 27, 2013.



    I had expected the larger mother to divide again before the daughter did.

    A shot from today, May 30, showing the mother in the foreground.



    Last night though, I noticed that the smaller form (on right) was already in the process of dividing, and it should be fully divided into two separate plants in just over a week or so.



    When these forms decide to divide, it happens quickly.

    Now they're not so much like cells. Cells don't divide THAT quickly. Still, at least you'll get more plants! Did you feed them anything unusual like fertilizer? That usually interferes with growth, good or bad as it may be.

    Hi Plant Planter, they were fed with bloodworms, to which they seem to respond quite well to.
