Thank you, Karen. Here's the original full size photo.

And a bit further down the road, loaded with fruit. Each fruit has up to 3 seeds in it (plant is self fertile).

Here is a baby seedling growing its first arm.



Another version and a plant with stress colors (sun stress does this).

Finally the mother plant today, in a 12 inch pot.

And while we're on the subject, two more medusas so you can see the range in size. The first plant is in a 3 gallon pot. The second plant is in a 4 inch pot and will grow no larger than 4 inches maximum.

Welcome to my world. Thank you all for stopping by. Smiling

One more picture for good measure. This is a so-called "arm crest" of the plant in the banner, with a few reversions (normal heads, tucked in here and there if you look).

Bedazzling!
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.
