Fascination with fasciation


Sweet potato with abnormal growth. This is the second sweet potato I have seen with faciation. Someway the apical meristem gets deformed and results in plant growth like this. (Scroll back to my very first post to see something similar in wild mullein. )

That would be "faScination with faSciation"

unless you
supress the
's.' (Okay, don't
obsess.)

You are correct. I would say the odds are that I am pronouncing it wrong also.
