Do you know at what age of the plant the leaves start to show the domatia phenotypes?
age can't be used as a terminolegy here, in a time sence.
for an average grower it could take you two years from the moment a leafcutting has produced it's first shoot.
but a super grower, in a place which is ideal for a plant, can produce the same development, i more than halve this time.
in other words, "a first time mature plant" could be 1 or 5 years or more old, depending on the enviroment.
unhappy and struggling viridis, don't show many domatia.
but young, and healthy ones do.
for me it's conceavable that domatia are a sign that the viridis plant has something to offer (to the insects?), so young or struggling plants don't produce domatias, because it would further reduce there virgor.
whilst happy viridis, are happy to give away....
