    Unhappy

    I was checking on my N. x edinensis's basal shoot and I noticed on the latest node there seems to be like a green thing protuding, so far the basal has 7 leaves. Is this a basal shoot or something else and I thought basals only form on woody stems?

    Perhaps a root? It could be another shoot - my edinensis usually makes leaders in pairs or triples. And sometimes dormant nodes stick out a little, I think.

    Yea, I think it's a dormant mode. The basal shoot is growing really fast, each new leaf is 3x bigger than the previous [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
