Here is the most recent photo of the weird branch on 1 of my seedlings. The curve seems to be getting larger. The good news is, the "normal" branch has a late inflo coming. roxanne

I have a seedling that has one of those claw looking things on it but it is only about two or three wide. Weird. Clara

RE: anamaly update

I should have put a reference. It is now at least 10 inches on the curve. roxanne

That is so cool looking, Roxanne. I remember my reaction when I first saw it, it stopped me in my tracks. Best of luck on the inflo!

Mike, I am hoping it will continue the curve into a circle... roxanne :-)

RE: anamaly update

Called a "crest." Weird and freaky occurence. Cactus and other plants to do it as well.....not common at all.

Consider youself lucky to own a crested plumeria! One of Werner's trees up the coast does this.

RE: anamaly update

yes, I have seen that one, but his crests don't seem to be as fanned out as this one. I am just excited now for the late inflo. I wonder if the crest ever blooms.

RE: anamaly update

now that the leaves are starting to fall off, it is even looking more weird. roxanne

RE: anamaly update

RE: anamaly update

It looks like hypergrowth of branches, sort of like 14 branches that fused.


 o
RE: anamaly update

Coooool!!!!!

RE: anamaly update

Please keep posted!!!!

RE: anamaly update

That is sooooo weird!!

What ever happened with the inflo that was developing? How old is this seedling? Has the branch grown (fanned more) this season?

Thanks for the 'freak show'!!!

RE: anamaly update

The inflo was on a different tip of same plant, I will take some more photos today to post and it was 1 of my 25 seedlings from 2005. roxanne ( yes, it has grown more this season, almost a half circle now...)


 o
RE: anamaly update

Looks a little scary to me. I hope it doesn't bite!


 o
RE: anamaly update

so here is the updated "portrait". Almost a half circle now. roxanne


 o
RE: anamaly update

Do you have any idea what would cause a branch to want to grow like this? Does it think it's a Staghorn fern :0 ?

I can't help but crack up when I look at the pictures!

Very COOL!


 o
RE: anamaly update

Just make sure it doesn't open up and bite you!! ;-)

Love it...

Laura


 o
RE: anamaly update

that's crazy! I have never seen anything like it.


 o
RE: anamaly update

Rox,
You have a chance of multiple inflos pushing out along the whole length of that crest in future seasons.


 o
RE: anamaly update

I am very excited about this one...it did abort the inflo last year on the 2 regular tips it has..you really can see the difference from this year to last. roxanne


 o
RE: anamaly update

Look up "fasciation."


 o
RE: anamaly update

That is freaky and very cool!


 o
RE: anamaly update

some of these TEETH are fighting for space and leaves!


 o
RE: anamaly update

Where was I that I missed the show! Just think if all those tip got inflos! And then all the tips split! "OMG" It already looks like jaws! LOL Peg


 o
RE: anamaly update

Peg, cannot wait for it to do SOMETHING!..


 o
RE: anamaly update

What is going on with this now????? Really taking on a weird curvy thing. roxanne


 o
RE: anamaly update

That has some personality. Wow!! It is alive, but it looks like it wants to eat some meat!! Lol.. Does it think its a carnivorous plumeria? Lol...

Just be careful.. Just small nibbles allowed. No big bites, please !!!

Take care,

Laura
