Hi aroideana,

Growing cut roses and roses in general I have come across spontaneous vegetative grows from flowers. This was on the whole always contributed to the effects of herbicide in very low levels. Any possibility of contamination? The hormonal herbicides are normally the culprits.

Hi Michael,

It sure looks like it changed its mind right back in the early stages of development right down in the growing bud in the centre of the plant, when it would have been just starting to change from normal growth to flower spike.  Or, maybe it was triggered abnormally to start forming a flower spike, then reverted back? 

I wonder if that would have been at about the same time as cyclone Yasi, with all of those wild swings in just about everything happening around the plant?  Just a thought.

Cheers, Paul

It was an old pic taken @Whyanbeel a few years ago .
Could have been herbicide or storm damage .
Once found 3 flower spikes coming out of 1 Ae. calichroma !
