I think you'll just have to wait for the next blooming, to figure out if this was a one-off mutation or if the plant has genetic issues. Another thought... I had a run of mutations when I used...

What was the condition of the roots when you repotted it? Also, did it perhaps get a chill when you were working with it? Or did you do any sort of "treatment" when you repotted (if you used hydrogen...
