Wanted to share a couple oddball cristate mexi-pings.
For those unfamiliar with fasciated growth, also known as crested/cristate/cristata growth, a good place to see this pattern is with succulents, where this growth is much more common.
Scolling down through the following link will give a pretty good idea of what to expect from fasciated growth.
Fasciation isn't near as common in CPs, but I did manage to find some pics of a cape sundew and vft in cristate growth.
Here is the only link I could find of a mexi-ping in crested growth. (5th row down)
This first set of pics were taken on March 20, last month.
These P. jaumavensis L90-14 are from BCP.
One of these mexi-pings was always a bit odd, but i didn't pay too much attention to it at first.
A side shot
And a shot from one end.
These photos must have been taken just before this butterwort replicated itself, because only twelve days later it had grown to look like this.
And on April 10, I was able to successfully separate this little oddity into two plants.
It is surprising how solid the leaves are on these plants: none were dislodged during separation, and they can take substantial pressure between a thumb and for*****er without being bent out of shape or losing leaves - this plant feels like hard moulded plastic.
Okay, so much for that one...now for the next one.
