    There is also a "faint" white rim around the top. Growth?

    That sounds like a good description of growth, it will be a light yellowigh type rim. Eventually it will send out sprouts and form a new one when it has gotten a little taller, when it does this the entire plant will go a little pale until the new one pops out, then they both color up.

    Not sure, it might be. Harder to tell with mermaids fans than pencil caps and brushes.
