Branching Patterns

This image shows silhouettes of several plants and differences in branching patterns. When wet, the stems and branches are turgid and more or less rounded (circular) when viewed from the tip with a hand lens. When either wet or dry, a single, short, abrupt, distinct cusp at the apex of the ovate, convex stem and branch leaves is diagnostic.
