    Default Weird New P-bulb

    On my onc. Sharry Baby, there's a new p-bulb showing on one of the growths. Strange thing is, the bulb seems to be splitting the side leaves in half along the middle. Not only the smaller leaf split, the other bigger one above it split too. Check the photo, you'll see what I mean. Two leaves have been split, and this never happened before. Is this "normal"? Anything to worry about?

    Thanks for any help!

    That's normal Lily, it happens quite often, nothing to worry about. That side 'leaf' is not a true leaf, it will turn brown soon.
