    Some species have slightly different methods of gemmae release, so patens might be one of the odd ones. But yeah, the flat petal-shaped leaves are the gemmae, not all species have round gemmae. Quite a few have the flat kind, actually.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Holy fudgemuffins you guys were right, they are gemmae! I harvested them, about 40 total realistically, maybe more. How long can I store them for in the fridge?

    I wouldn't store them more than a couple of weeks. If much longer they will either go bad and mold or start to germinate.
