Just picked this up at my LFS. I've never seen one before - is this something that's out there that I just haven't seen yet?

Yeah, they're out there. I think it has a lot to do with the conditions where they're grown. I wish mine grew a little more like that instead of a softball sized mass with heads sticking off of it. It's really pretty but I can't frag it.

Thanks for the reply Shmax. I've had a duncan for several months and it looks nothing like the new one. Here's a pic of the one I've had for a while....

Time time and more time. They will sprout heads when fed, but growth like that takes time I believe. I've had mine for a while as well and it has just recently look like it's going to start branching.

Run a search concerning strength of water flow and growth patterns of duncans. I seem to remember reading something that stated that higher flow results in the branching patterns, and low flow in the more softball mass growth pattern... could be wrong but I certainly do recall reading something like this.

Interesting.
Do you kow how well they survive if you frag them fairly close to the head? (on a not-so-branching type?)
