Some vegetative rosettes (20 of 120, 17%) had [greater than or equal to] 5 cladodes the first year they were seen, because fission is scored as vegetative reproduction
Hence, it is highly probable that the clumps collected by Soltis et al (1987) represented closest relatives because the vegetative reproduction
is most frequent that the sexual reproduction in this epiphyte.
repens over a wide geographical range could reveal correlations among cytotypes and self compatibility, vegetative reproduction
, and morphological features.
We also ascertain the relationship between age of maturity and life span in herbaceous perennials with vegetative reproduction
compared with those without it.
