    It shouldn't but it is--there is one on each plant in that pot and more like it coming up that you can't see in that pic.

    Parasites are a possibility, my VFTs all died from some sort of parasite. But I'm not gonna worry about it because I need to get my plant count down anyway >.> Before I move.

    Stressed S. purpurea - and any plant, for that matter - can produce unexpected "leaves".

    That's freaking cool whatever it is!

    Looks like the first evolutionary step towards Nepentheshood.

    Won't flower stalks sometimes throw off new plants at the end like orchids periodically do (called keikis)?

    My orchids periodically do this and so do my echinacea.... though it doesn't look like there are any areas for new pitchers to form at the base of the current ones... looks smooth

    Coneflowers produce daughter plants from flowers?! I have a ton in my front yard and I've never seen that. It's probably because the goldfinches eat the flowers before they go to seed.

    I have a few plants (not the standards) that grow full plants at each each stem "joint" as it goes to the flower.. which is usually a sad version.

    This purp is like the post a while back where a vft started growing small plants on the flower stems. Per Brokken... called "Vegetative apomixis"
