there is a more detailed picture uploaded (see post #8 in that thread):


To me it looks like chorophyll deficiency in definite areas and layers of that leaf; this would speak for a genitical chimera.

The forum member took small leaf cuttings; hopefully the will grow, let alone, if the cells that are modified will contribute to callus and adventitious buds...

Any comments?

Happy growing, Bernhard.


a member of our forum noticed a variegation on the younger leaf (and not so prominent on the first leaf) of one of his dactylifer (seed raised; I guess seeds from Merlin Sy).

He wonders, if this is a pathogen (virus) or a genetical chimera (like A. konjac 'Shattered Glass').

Have look:

Any suggestion welcome !

Happy commenting, Bernhard.
