Something I noticed just few minutes ago on a couple of plants. Maybe one is a new branch and the other is a prolif, not sure about it.

Pardon me - this could be a short branch? It has buds.

Seedling - this looks more like a proliferation..

That looks correct to me, but lets wait and see just what develops.

Some weirdness here on Lullaby Baby. The scape is to the left. Looks like too many leaves to be a short scape. Opinions?

It is odd. I'd call it a blooming proliferation until I learn otherwise I guess!

I can't see a scape, so from what I am seeing it does look like a proliferation. I don't think I have ever had one to bloom like that.

the short scape could be hidden by leaves. Diana, does it have a scape?

New shots from the proliferation/branch. It's growing but I can't decide what it is. What do you think? You shoul enlarge pictures to see them well.

A blooming proliferation? Wow I never saw one!
If this is a prolif I'd like to save it for a friend. Will it be able to root as non-blooming prolifs?

That's really neat.I don't know why it would be different than any other proliferation when it comes to rooting it. It's great you took photos of it so the rest of us could share and learn from it.

Thanks. Photos are not good quality but the phone was under the sun and I wasn't able to see if they were on focus or not. I was thinking the prolif uses energy to bloom but in the end it's still a prolif and maybe will root.
I love prolifs. A friend of mine gets them usually. But this year I can't find many. Or do they come more toward the end of the season? I can't remember well when I harvested the past year.

I think proliferations are cultivar related. Some cultivars produce a lot and some never seem to produce any proliferations. I guess how often and how many proliferations are produced each year may be climate related and maybe related to nutrient intake. I have some now but it is normally toward the end of the season and the foliage is dying down that I find more of them, and I normally wait to see if any roots develop. You can harvest the ones with out roots and sometimes they roots will still develop in a water or potted up.
