    What is it? Im suspecting it to be new growth points. But I figured I would find out if its that or not. This is supposedly grown from seed.


    N. gymnamphora (seed grown)


    And I highly doubt its a flower stalk at this age. Im just confused Cause I thought it happend when they were older. And just so you guys knwo that leaf grew like that after I shipped it.

    Thanks!

    It looks like your plant went through some stress and a dormant node did start to grow. This may or may not be turn into a growing growth point. I have one of those on one of my plants and it just stays looking like that and the original growing point keeps on going. This odd growth showed up after I made a large cutting from the tip of the plant.

    Do you mean there's a tendril coming out of the node? I would assume you're getting multiple growth points, which is good

    tendrils growing out of nodes seems abnormal to me, since they normally form at the ends of leaves. Nodes usually sprout new growth points. IF you have new growth points coming out of nodes, that's a good thing.
