Not sure I'd call it pseudoscience.. it's mainstream science, (observation, record, publish) if you're referring to my post on the smaller groups of leaves occurring after the coldArctic Nuts wrote:Lets be careful to avoid pseudoscience here chaps.
If you were referring to the plant 'thinking' - thats was a bit of light heartedness nothing to do with science
Mislabelling is a problem. Most of the Yucca's that used to come via the USA and labelled as Gloriosa were in fact Guatemalensis(Yucca Elephantipes), which explains why mine still gets occasional stem pull before recovering in the spring.bev wrote:looks o.k to me edo, those trunks are quite strong although after the recent confusion over gloriosa/recurvifolia i'd say yours was the latter. my gloriosa leaves are vicious and never recurve. yours look to have some softness to them. i'm sure it's because of the garden centres miss-labeling that i thought they were just different forms
Pure Gloriosa would have no problem and unlike yours, would be more rigidly upright. Yours isn't Guatemalensis though. I'd agree it looks more like it has some Recurvifolia, or possibly Aloifolia blood in it. The 'blue' hue to it though is interesting, so i'm going to hold off any definite identification and look into it .
Looks a great plant, Edo! -and my Variegated Gloriosa is bolt on hardy as nails!
Yours Looks like it's been cut from a trunk offset , though.
