    Spectabilis73,
    Mine is doing the same thing! See Gotta question, About my D. binata.
    I suspect, that it may be the D. binata var. multifida pink-flowered. I say this because D. binata's lamina only fork once, while ours have forked twice. Multifida fork twice, but will not go dormant according to D'Amato. Mine was definitely dormant or playing possum. D'Amato then mentions that there is a pink-flowered variety that does have a brief dormancy. That fits what we have seen thus far. I guess the clincher will be when they flower.

    Spec, I think you may be on the right track. I just had a new leave unfurl and it has 5 points instead of 4. Seems like each succesive set of leaves unfurls with an additional point. First 2, then 3, then 4, and now 5. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Actually, five points seems to be the limit with dichotoma. Mature plants will often get more, but my plant (see pic below) has been growing for over a year now and still averages 4-5 points per complex.
