    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
    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!

    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!
