The star is where a shoot is appearing from the main stem. The spider is the latest leaf from the basal shoot.
I am worried that I may lose the basal shoot because the main stem may "snatch" the nutrients from it to support the new shoot.
Am I being paranoid? I hesitate to take the basal shoot as a cutting because I've already lost the main vine which I cut off a month ago. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
