Strange Things That Happen: Belinda's Strange Leaf Baby

Belinda Thibodeaux shared this photo of a very weird occurrence!
She writes:
I know you all have probably seen this before, but it never fails to amaze me what these plants can do. This is a leaf of Yoki propagating in Sphagnum Moss. See the baby growing out of the leaf itself? It's not even touching the moss.

I don't know about everyone else, but I've certainly never seen that happen before. As most of us know, the babies growing from the base of the leaf are "proper". The rogue baby growing from the top/center of the leaf is just crazy--It actually made me giggle when I first saw it!

By the way, for anyone not familiar with Belinda--she's the hybridizer of the new Cajun's series of African violets. (Quick, open your FC2 program and look!) Also, you can check out her online photo albums and see her beautiful hybrids as well as all of the other beautiful African violets she grows (and wow, does she ever grow 'em good!)

Have you had any strange occurrences among your African violets that you'd like to share? Who among us doesn't love to stare at a freak once in a while? Please email me your pics with a blurb to: Remember--Weirdos make the world a more interesting place!
