    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]

    Hi
    The main plant looks a bit weak and stressed to me. Personally I would leave everything as they are and let the basal develop. Its unlikely to affect the main stem, and may well eventually overtake it in growth. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    cheers

    I would leave as is like Bill suggests. Eventually you could remove the basal shoot with the spider if one becomes noticeably stronger. For now though don't mess with it too much. It looks like it had a rough ride.

    That sphagnum infesting, plant sucking purple starfish is also probably new to science! You need some serious chemicals Cindy PRONTO! hehe

    Sad looking right? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] It was quite an handsome plant which I grew under florescent lights. When I placed it in the open, it sent out 2 basal shoots. One died and the other is the one you see in the photo. All these happened after it flowered. Sigh...I think the plant nearly flowered itself to death. To beat that, the flower buds did not open and I still don't know if it's a boy or girl. But I like boys better (see the "handsome" in the first line).

    Anyway, now it's back under FL.

    The spider looked almost real when I used a smaller one. So I enlarged it in case it looked real and you guys missed the point. Well, well...one of you still did. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Cindy... I find that when I have newly imported, unestablished young N. campanulata plants they may indeed flower, putting alot of stress on the plant. They typically don't fully develop either as you mention. Sounds like what happened to your plant perhaps. As long as the roots are good though, it will come back. I think moving it back under some bright fluorescent will help. It looks a little pale from over exposure. Perhaps when it is growing at full steam and being feed well it could take brighter light. Will take a while but have alot of patience.. N. campanulata for me takes a long time to really settle in well.
