Dear Mike,

The way in which bulbifer and muelleri produce bulbils, as really on TOP of
the leaf axis, is unmatched by any other species BUT Am. yuloensis (China)
does imitate it pretty well. However the onset of the bulbil is IN the tissue
of the axis and not on TOP of it. later the epiderm of the axis ruptures
and exposes the corly tissue of the bulbil, which also starts to grow
strongly at its apex, thus appearing to be on top of the axis. A close look
will show that it is however embedded IN the axis with the base. Where
does your plant originate from?

Cheers, Wilbert
