Well how strange is that? It certainly does look fasciated. Where is twit?
Wonder if it is one of those damage things again. It's not on the same plants you had the winter damage on is it? Sure is interesting. Which one is it?

Keep taking pictures Chris. Wonder if they will produce fasciated chicks?

Fasciated and other odd growing plants are valuable oddities. Please take care of that one - even if it is a no id at this point, if the pattern continues and reproduces, you could have something worth naming. Perhaps you've got Sempervivum 'Chris's Peculiarity' growing... Blinking

Rolling on the floor laughing Chris's Peculiarity! I like that! I have several hens of that variety producing those chicks, so I will definitely give them extra TLC.

Hurray! Oh wow, we have a 'Mad Scientist' in the Cubit. Rolling on the floor laughing
I am so excited seeing their progress Chris. Thumbs up How interesting it will be to see if they produce chicks, and if the fasciated hens will flower.
I have a fasciated lewisia and it will never bloom again. It bloomed for years before sending out all the fasciated leaves.

That looks pretty cool! I've had fasciated lilies, but they were only that way for one year.

The lewisia is permanent, but it does have one pup coming off of it that appears to be normal.

Some fasciation is caused by a virus, or other damage, and some plants certainly are more prone to it. Interesting!

I've tried to take special care of these, but the fasciated chicks seem to be drying up. I will keep an eye on the hen to see if it produces any more like this.

Oh no, I am so sorry to hear that Chris. I was looking forward to them becoming a mature odd plant.

Interesting..... please explain 'fasciated' - for a gardener trying to learn how to
grow lots and lots of these plants for a wreath (I already have the form !). I
realize that goal may be years..?????... in the future. Sad

Simply put, fasciation is when one or more growing parts of the plant get damaged or go off program to produce abnormal plant structures, typically enlarged and/or flattened from the normal.
