    No I did not make that term up, its an actual hornaculture term (sorry, my spelling sucks).

    Darcie, your description is very good...yes, it's like a cancer that forms a new plant.

    callus may sound correct, but it also sounds like this is based on leaf cuttings which in this case has nothing to do with what's happen with the plant.
    And yes, I did mean to say bifurcating before. Once again, my spelling sucks...

    There seems to be a preponderence of those "snooty words" in this thread. Right, Darcie? Could someone further define the term - bifurcating & callus?

    No offence, but I think you might be getting your terminology mixed up. I believe you could be referring to "witches broom", which is a fungal disease affecting woody plants. It causes the plant to produce a dense knot of small twigs. Here's an example

    It wouldn't produce a new plant though. If you post a pic it will be much clearer.

    Cheers.

    Jim,

    Here is further clarification on the definitions of the 'snooty words' you requested-

    callus- the thick new tissue that develops and covers the injury to a plant or cutting.

    bifurcate- (bi= 2, furcate= forked), with 2 branches.
    Examples being the forking of stigmas, the leaf of a Drosera binata, or the stem of a D. capensis dividing and forming 2 plants.

    Sean.

    It could be the plant is missing a regulation gene in the origenal leaf causeing unrepaired celluler damage to occur more frequently. I can see this causeing an effect similar to dramatically injerd leaves, aka cuttings. Same root process, different trigger. I'll go see if I can dig up some info on the subject [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] it sounds neet... I think we have a horticulture slang term here. Like Sun Skalled, it's not technical, but it's commenly used in some places, while not in others.

    Okay, I didn't find witches brew or callus to be mentioned as a name for axsexual reproduction anywere, but I did find some names [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Actually, I mostly found out common terms for funky reproductive methoids are compleatly unreliable and all over the map, lol. I also found no scientific term, just decriptive phrases. I guess plants just have too many ways of reproducing

    Budding: This is a coined term by a few people who, "for lack of a better term", chose to refer to the process by thesame name as the animal asexual reproductive standard. This is Mitosis at Meristem(did I spell that correctly?)... or the rapid formation of dence cellular masses on a leaf of a plant that eventually grow into miniture adults. They may drop off on there own, or require a trama of the leaf. Sporatic in many plants, common in few, cause of sporatic occurences unknown.

    Water Sprout: Common in fruit trees, causes mini tree to shoot out of limb and branch out as though a seporet entity, related to suckers.

    Suckers: Minni plants in progress along the stem at leaf and buds and joints. If left may create entire minni version of the adult and drop to the ground, or remain as extra folliage untill adult suffers trama hitting ground and then the sucker will send down roots. Acts as back up system in many fruits.

    Natural Layering: When a lead touches the ground, the parent plant is stimulated to produce a plantlett at this point. Many plants will only do this with the help of humans and must be burried rather then symply touch moisture, in this case it is mearly called Layering. If layering occurs above ground level, it's called air layering.

    Runners (Stolons(sp?) and Rhyzomes): All stems. Rhyzomes run undeground and form new plants when they meet sutable conditions. Stolons are above ground and create plantlets when they meet sutable conditions/dorment node on stem touches soil surface.


    I'm going to guess that it is either natural air layering if it is at the leaf tip, or if it is some other place on the leaf then the "budding" thing and if it is at the joint of the leaf, sucker-like thingy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Sounds like the plant has become vivaperous,Nymphea micranthus is a classic example of this.
