Daniel O. Posted February 9, 2012 Report Share Posted February 9, 2012 Hi all, i grow i big number of mature D. spiralis (graminifolia) from ´Itacambira´ and ´Diamantina´ and most of them are in flower at the moment but this one is really strange, it´s a form from ´Itacambira´. First of all it´s a very compact and robust plant, since a few months it started to produce a big number of side shots (all the others don´t do it). The leafes are about 20cm long but several of them are branching in the upper part of the leafes, really strange. Furthermore the flower scapes do have a big number of tentacles in the upper part (relatively small leafes with tentacles between the flowers), even the sepals do have a big number of tentacles. All my other D. spiralis look absolutely "normal". Here are some pictures from two weeks ago. Here several side shots are visible Here you can see the development of a 3 forked leaf (in the left part of the picture) the hole plant Here you can see some of the tentacles on the developing flower scape and some of the folked leafes And some flowers, it´s a three forked flower scape and here is a one of the small leaves with tentacles visible. some mutant flowers here the tentacles are clearly visible, even on the petals This flower is from the small plant which sprouted out of the roots some time ago, it also has these tentacles on the sepals. What do you think about these strange tentacles? Best regards, Dani Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
