Just took some more pics today to show that extra appendage 😂
It just looks like jewellery, ear rings or such... I wonder, whether the judges were puritans of some sorts (no matter whether they are of evangelical, jewish or islamic extraction.....puritans tend to hate everything, that are either fun or deviates from the norm!)?

I’m actually shocked they awarded it despite two very glaring misgivings of the plant:

1. the antenna or ‘earrings’
2. the inflorescence was half the normal height

So it was lucky it’s ‘Big Arms’ won them over lol.
