I have some seedlings from the cold group that look to be fasciated, two out of three seedlings from the same cross have wide stems with many , many leaves and branches on 8 inch plants. Has anybody seen or had experience with this sort of thing? Will they grow out of this condition? They are strong healthy looking plants, just rather odd looking, so I'm sure they will survive but growing like this will they ever Y and bloom?

I also have a double NOID that is about 5 years old now, grows well and has lots of flowers BUT the flowers almost never open properly! The outer petals don't seem to grow large enough to allow the inner part to grow. There have been some that have opened properly so I know it can do it but I haven't found what I'm doing wrong that doesn't allow most of them to open. Any ideas from anybody?

Thanks
Brian

It's only an 8 inch seedling and still under lights. I have nowhere else to put it till spring comes and it can go outside. Six years is a long time to hang on to something that won't bloom, I don't think I'll keep mine that long if there are no blooms.
