Mutant coleus

Recommended Posts

I just discovered this strange leaf formation on one of my coleus plants today.

It seems like several leaves have fused together and created this pseudo-flower thing.

I was quite impressed. Plants just keep rolling out the surprises :)

amazing indeed, maybe you should think about how you could preserve this feature for the future (dry out in a book, or cast into resin?!).

I was wondering what the chances are that it would take as cutting?

I will ask my friend if she will help me set it in resin though, she has set lots of plants and bugs in resin so should know how to deal with it.
