Strange leaf on 'Krimson Queen'

wrynsmom(5)April 8, 2010

Just thought I'd share. Bought this little EA plant, yesterday for $2. There were four plants in the pot, and this STRANGE little funnel leaf on one. :) Thought you guys might like it!

Have a great day!

Cool!!! Is it hard or soft. I'm just wondering if it is going to grow up to be a big funnel, teehehe...

It's pretty rigid. I'm thinking it might stay this way!

I love unusual leaves, as long it's not because of some damage. That's neat. Post again when it's all grown up.

Yes, that's very cool. One of the very cool things about KQ leaves is how variable in shape the leaves can be.

I've recently bought 2 large regular KQ which are pretty standard & then also 2 of what I've been told here is the 'superior clone' which has exrememly variable leaves. Makes it extra fun (to me).

Yes, pls. DO post back & show us your funnel leaf as it matures.

That whole pot of plants was strange. :) That particular plant also had irregularly shaped leaves that were cupped. Another had leaves that were shaped like 'Chelsea' and another like 'Krinkle 8', but all were variegated. Strange, indeed.

I will post more pics as it matures. :)
