It looks like fasciation, which is caused by Corneybasterium fasciana.  It is
sometimes referred to as "witches brooms".  Some books say to cut it all
carefully off and swab the plant with alcohol, and the plant will continue to
grow.  Others say that it is not a fixable problem and to destroy the plant
and the pot it was growing in so as to avoid infecting the rest of the

I think it is kind of interesting and have one on a zonal that I keep growing
in a corner of the lathhouse away from the other pelargoniums just in case it
is contagious.  My plant's fasciation is more of a green color, just slightly
darker green than the stem rather than the reddish brown of your plant.

Do you think this stuff comes in different colors, or that your plant has
something else?
