The Mutation Continues

Barnum has had mutations before, but never like this... We noticed that an anxious tip had unfurled before the rest of the leaf, tearing itself in a rush to freedom. The rest of the leaf followed suit, tearing identically on the other side. That has happened before; that is not new. This time, however, the outer edges sought to repair the damage, fusing the leaf together. For several days now this leaf has grown larger, stronger, still connected in the centre, circular fibres flowing. I love this plant.
