right now this is what it looks like (structurally), when will i get the leafy look like this?
I was actually wondering the same thing.....
it has grown alot, about 1cm all the way around, and in thickness, but no actual branching like EVERYONE else has lol
I would like to know also. I am guessing you need it to grow substantially, 3 of 4 times larger than it is now, before you get the layering.
bump for knowledge
You have to have them under substantial flow to obtain secondary plating. Also, as John stated, the initial plate will need to be substantially larger for it to start adding secondary plates.
Interesting to know about the flow needs Curt, thanks for the info.
Would it be possible to imitate this effect by gluing a couple small frags next to each other and allow them to grow out?
That sounds reasonable Clonefarmer.
it'll take as long as it takes- the best things to help you are intense flow, as well as fairly intense lighting- by leafing out, the monti will be covering up a portion of its own 'body' so intense lightning will help 'convince' it that this won't be a problem.
