  Re: [aroid-l] How many leaves??

Hi Peter,
Thanks for the response. Most plants have secondary leaf buds that
activate when the primary leaf is damaged or removed. It may also
activate if the plant is traumatized. Usually, its part of the survival
mechanism. Perhaps these plants are genetically altered, or the primary
leaf is not providing adequate nutrients for the plant. Ron
