    Fasciation fascination

    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.

    https://www.google.ca/search?q=crist...w=1280&bih=855

    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)

    http://www.pinguicula.org/pages/page...s/Bizarre1.htm

    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 forefinger 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.

    I have a lauanea that did this.. it is now a clump of them.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I had a P. moranensis do something somewhat similar after flowering. It eventually reverted back to its normal form though after dividing.

    Drosera rotundifolia will do this quite often particularly when the plants are 2+ years old.


    I've had Drosera falconeri do this.


    Almost all my Mexican Pinguicula have done this one time or another.

    At about the same time that the P. jaumavensis was doing its thing above, my P. spec. Minas des Asbestos started putting out extra growth. (following pics from March 25)

    At first glance, it looked like four growth points,



    but a closer look revealed something else at play here.



    This plant was fed some bloodworms and looked like this on April 1.



    And this pic from April 8.



    By April 12, a pattern was definitely emerging.



    An interesting leaf shape started to emerge on April 14, looking to me like a double leaf.









    Today, April 15th, it became more apparent what this leaf was to become.



    From above, this new dual pointed leaf could be the start of a demarcation line, maybe signalling that this plant also wants to duplicate itself.

    Dang!! Better keep an eye on that first ping. . . it looks like it's under-going meiosis! :O
