Daily Dose of Yin-Yang.. Pot Leaf Style

Well, looks like I might have just found my new background!  I'm not sure how this occurs naturally, but it's definitely one of the most interesting leaves I've seen lately.  And that's saying a lot.  Seriously.

  13. Just like in a human, the fluids in a plant flow along many different tubes. I think in plants they care called capillaries, but I'm mildly hung over, so I'm not going to bother checking.

    On that leaf, a pinch, bit of wind, or insect damaged the capillaries on one side of the leaf, but not the other, reducing the amount of fluid that can flow...thus starving that side of the leaf of liquid. The cells in that part of the leaf, sensing from the lack of flow of liquid to take energy from the Chlorophyll and so on, stops producing Chlorophyll , the leaf stops growing.

    Thus the curve and smaller leaf-parts on that side.
