Re: POLLOCK PUCKER AND OTHER PUKEY PLANTS

Robins,
 I note that Marvin did not indicate the source of ' Lunar Eclipse'....perhaps
because it is not a very good plant with its characretistic "pucker" . It has been
pointed out previously that  when this plant is grown in the spring in a
greenhouse with higher night temperatures, it does not have the pucker.

The plant is derived as a sport ( Zilis 1985) of August Moon." If one cuts the
plant back every year you have a nice plant" per Pete Ruh. The reason for the
pucker is probably due to the fact that in some clones of this cultivar,  the LI
layer of the border which is white, does not grow as fast as the LII layer, (the
inside of the leaf which is chartreuse) in cool weather. Therefore the white
border appears as a "drawstring" might look around the border, which has not grown
at the same rate as the inside of the leaf. If the plant is cut down, then the
growth later in the season is more normal because temperatures are higher, which
does not result in as much puckering in the border tissue. Thus, the plant,
although it is not a good one from its  early growth characteristics, is
interesting as a study from a physiological growth response standpoint.
