              Well I've never seen them do that.:biggrin:
              They appear to be growing upside down as well, or is the picture upside down?

              The ones in the last picture look more normal to me.

                    I'm saying pic three appears normal, but I can see the problem shown in pic one and two.

                    Just dont understand it.:scratch::biggrin:
