Crest or monstrose

lakimJune 7, 2014

What's the difference between crest and monstrose? I'm getting ready to show this Euphorbia kibwezensis and I need to pick the right category.

Monstrose is when the growing points are multiplied. Crested is when the growing point is drawn into a line. What you show is a nice crested plant. Crested plants also can bloom, while monstrose usually don't.
