    3, 5 then 7 fingered leaves...now 3 and 1 finger?

    Just wondering whats up with this. I have a plant thats budding and I've noticed that it originally grew 3 fingered leaves, followed by 5 and 7 fingered, like normal, but now that its budding its starting to grow 3 and even 1 fingered leaves near the top...is this normal?



    If you look a lot of the leaves are only 3 fingered, and theres even some long 1 finger leaves.

    go to the gallery & look at some mature buds & you'll see the same.
    thanks for the quick reply! What about the larger leaves (like the one at the bottom of the pic) that still only has 3 fingers? I've noticed on other peoples plants they have 5 or 7.
