Is this tight girdle of chicks normal? They get larger but are not growing out at all. I've looked a bit but don't see any like this. Seems relatively happy and time will tell but I'm sure someone or more of you have a thought or three. I tip my hat to you.

Good morning Leslieray,

Yes, many of the cultivars do that very thing. It will eventually grow out. Do you know the age of the parent rosette?
