    I wasn't sure if the picture was an illusion or not, but I tugged in the old "paddle" leaf and it was indeed attached to the plant with the rounded (newer) leaves. I have been trying to keep in synch with the season by lowering the photoperiod with the timer. I had to up the photperiod an hour a couple weeks ago. As I see dew I will sprinkle food on the leaves and see what happens.

    funny thing happened the other day. I was looking at my D. "Ivan's Paddle" growing in my unheated greenhouse and saw something odd. I could see round leaves being produced. Maybe a gene expression/signaling response to temp? As it gets colder the D. rotundifolia genes switch on more and provide greater influence on the leaf shape. They haven't gone dormant though. My D. rotundifolia "Charles Darwin" have all gone dormant.......

    I'm waiting to see what happens as the growing season kicks in. It would also be interesting to see if I can get leaf cuttings to strike.

    Talking with Ivan Snyder today at the LACPS meeting he tells me that round leaf growth occurs rather regularly depending on the conditions. He said a few people whom had received plants from him asked if it were actually D. rotundifolia. He gave me a cup of 'Ivan's Paddle' which may actually contain the mother plant. I'll take some photos for reference tomorrow.

    I got these directly from Ivan Snyder yesterday. Note there are a couple very round leaves.
