Conjoined Leaves Of An African Violet

Zipperin1This posting is a little different.  Nothing to do with chimera African violets but an interesting observation that comes from J. Miemietz in Germany.   Although I have had only one occasion of seeing conjoined leaves  in my long experience of growing African violets, apparently not the case with J. Miemietz.   This young plant already has *2* conjoined leaves on it.  This cultivar,  RS-Izumrudnyj Bereg  (Изумрудный Берег) already had one of the two conjoined leaves put down to see if the plantlets it produces will produce conjoined leaves at the same rate.  Perhaps it will not express this conjoined leaf habit at all.  But I look forward to the outcome and hope we will be kept updated.


The leaf underside nicely illustrates the conjoined leaves.
