    Unhappy

    Hello to everyone!
    My same villosa that was outside home end November 2005 while it was snowing and that now lives in terrarium has developed a strage leaf....or...?
    The plant during those 3 months has grown very nice and quickly and always more better ( just check the leafes and the last pitcher in the photo) but the leafes that came out are simply strange...
    I zoomed the part of the villosa and it seems like a failed retry to develope a flower spike? Even if plant is very young? Can it be? The dark point doesn't look at like a leaf...some genical error in cellular duplication?!? What could it be...and why those strange things happen sometimes even the plant is really nice growing?
    Could it be maybe a remote past cause of drastically weather change?
    A malformation of meristematic cellular division?
    The plant was maybe dooped or trated too intensly with osmocote?
    I cannot give me and answer..some of you have experinces in malformations?
    There could be come argument connections with the recently campanulata's spike topic [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    Here are the pics!
    Let me know

    It looks like a blind shoot. This happens when the embryonic leaves are subject to inappropriate conditions, and fail to develop properly. Most of the time, the growing point will fail and a secondary shoot will develop.

    Well SydneyNeps,
    in my situation the Nep. villosa is really actually growing fine!
    Just look at the last 2 leafes and last developing pitcher!
    It is more big and the plant isn't suffering.
    I could more think about past effect...maybe because very cold weather of end November 2005?
    I moved villosa from very cold weather ( the plant was not suffering whe it was moved) to warm terrarium.

    That happenned to my ovata. I thought it was due to too wet of a soil. It may just have been the colder temps and direct sun causing the "blind shoot". Months after repotting it has two basals and two shoots, yippeee!

    after:

    Should probably update this as it is looking even better.

    One of my Home Depot Neps is going through the same thing. I gave it some pretty bad conditions for a while and now it has that "blind shoot" going on. Hopefully it'll recover!
