Re: Rorippa aquatic oddity
Hello, I just wanted to share an odd occurrence that has happened
with my Rorippa aquatic to see if anyone else is familiar with this
development. Several months ago I purchase a emersed grown R.
aquatic and placed in in a planted tank, submerged. It went
through the evolution from emergent leaves to submerged leaves.
After that was done I found an intact leaf floating in the tank that
had a couple short, tiny white strands coming out of the base of
the leaf stem. I decided to stick the leaf in the ground on a chance
that the strands might be roots. Sure enough a new plant
Now the odd part, instead of developing into a rosette type
plant like a sword, it has grown as a stem plant. It looks incredibly
strange. The stem is very slender and the leaves are regular
shaped submergent leaves coming out alternately up the stem
with a fairly large distance between each leaf. The plant is about 6
inches tall now.
Anyone have any comments or ideas on this phenomenon?
