    Unhappy

    The first four leaves it put out forked only once. No suprise there. The next two leaves forked once then one blade on each of those forked again. OK, I thought, my luck I get a wierd plant. These last two leaves have both forked twice. Is this typical for D. binata. This is the first time I have grown D. binata and I am curious if I should expect more of this.

    Thanks for the info Zach. And much as I'd like a multifida, I hope this isn't one. My computer room won't be big enough for the two of us [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ! This binata has a tendency to give me a sloppy 'kiss' if I don't keep an eye on it when I water my other CPs that are next to it. I don't think I could handle the 'affections' a multifida would give me in these cramped quarters [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . As I ordered it from Exotic Gardens, I am pretty sure it is a binata.

    Just for the record, both dichotoma and multifida are both varities of D. binata. There is no D. multifida. It sounds like you have D. binata var. multifida if the lamina fork more than once.

    Thanks Tamlin,
    While I haven't had this plant long enough to be sure if this is a chance occurance or is its typical growth, I suspect you are right. The first leaves to sprout were short (4"-5"), but each succesive leaf was a little longer than the last. The stem of both leaves that forked twice are 12''+ in length. Just a little larger than I expected a D. binata to get. I put this down to being etoliation due to my 'energy efficient' windows filtering the light that comes through them. But, it looks like I may be wrong and had better find another spot for this plant soon. One where it is a little harder for it to grab me when I come into my room [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .

    Steve,
    Possibly outside if the humidity is 40% and above most of the time. Mine get to be hedges when grown outside.

    That would be a good place, but can they take temps in the mid 50F range? Thats been about the warmest it has been here this week.

    Steve,

    I froze my mulifida extrema and 'Martson Dragon' solid for three days this winter and they are all growing back now. So I would say 50 isn't going to harm them much [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Or wait a month (but given CO weather there is no guarantee, I remember frosts in June.)
