Itoigawa tip looks odd?

Hey guys,

Is does this look normal to you?
I started seeing some distortion on a few tips of this itoigawa approach graft I did last summer.
This spring I separated the graft from the roots, otherwise it seems healthy, no browning seems to be growing.
Should I be concerned?



I would not be concerned.
It could be the growth opening (juvenile growth) from stress. Just let it grow.

Good point on juvenile foliage, thanks!

Look likely to be flowers to me. Not an issue at all.


looks like pollen cones to me
