    I have a bifurcated capensis

    That just almost sounds bad....

    Anyhow, is this common? My d. capensis is sending up a flower stalk and I just noticed it is bifurcated. When it was coming up earlier I noticed the pods seemed to be more clumped than linear like I had had before, but it wasn't until now that I noticed it is split.

    I appologize for the poor image quality, but it is hard to get it focused with the flower stalk just hanging there in space.




    Edit: Edited the image, I retook it on manual instead of automatic. It is a bit dark, but much more clear than the previous image. A guy takes 2 minutes to retake the picture and there is already a reply. I guess things could be worse ;-)

    Heh, more weeds for you.

    Dunno if it's common, doubt it though. At least it's cool looking.

    I would say that its neither common, nor uncommon. Its a lot like the double headed Venus Flytrap, every once in a while it just happens. Below is a picture of one of my D. capensis plants from a couple seasons ago which had 3 or 4 split scapes on it at the same time. Man... did I get a LOT of seeds from that sucker that year lol


    Here are a couple pics of that plant. Click on the image to see the full sized view. I also have several other shots of this plant that I can e-mail you if you are interested.


    Cheers

    I've found that as my D. capensis mature, they tend to form larger and larger flowers scapes with 2-3 bifurcations on each.

    I haven't paid much attention this year though, because I've been clipping all my D. capensis scapes this season. I got way too many hitch-hikers popping up in all my other pots from last year.
