It's an odd coincidence that I'm posting twice today about two different kinds of banding today.
This one is about B52, and has me kind of confused:
I received a B52 from tissue culture from David Conner, which came in a "clump" of two plants sharing a rhizome and were in the process of dividing. I've been growing it for about 4 months now.
The "parent" B52 has no external banding on the outside of the traps (last attachment), although there's a hint of it on the right side if you look closely. The smaller plant has *very* pronounced red banding on the outside of every single trap its produced (first two attachments). I have not yet divided the rhizomes but there are two distinct growth points. I checked the growth points twice to confirm the banding was only on one plant.
What gives? Is it due to the age of the plant?
Are B52's known for such red banding? I have a B52 outdoors that doesn't have banding either.
