Monstrous Plants – Online sale
Monstrous plants are the type of plants that, as a result of mechanical, traumatic or virus (or insect) actions, have undergone changes such as modifications, deformations, proliferations or loss of some parts. In this way, the areas of the growth meristem involved become growth areas, assuming forms atypical for the species.
Plant growth areas are generally arranged according to the ordinary Fibonacci pattern. But in these cases the apical meristem multiplies, showing growths which, in addition to being vertical, can also be horizontal or lateral, giving life to their unusual shapes.
Some examples of monstrosities are the spiral twisting of the ribs or even the absence of thorns and leaf growths. Monstrous plants differ from crested plants in that they do not have the typical symmetry of the latter.
