    Has anyone ever had a pin cushion split? I am trying to take pictures, can only see this after lights are switched of.

    There is a lighter color(almost white) line running down the centre of my pin cusion, maybe about 2-3mm wide, and this weekend I noticed at the end of the lines it looks like it is splitting.

    I read through some old posts and could not find anything similar.

    I know its difficult to answer without pics, but maybe some genral info?

    This sounds Interesting, definitely Tagging!! ,
    Is the Pin cushion sulking or fully opened up?

    Fully opend up, have it for about 6 months now, and it has about doubled in size.

    So health wise it seems perfect, had a look at coral diseases and none looks like this.

    I got 2 pincushions that like to frag themselves. The edge fold and form a piece that flaps around. Eventually it falls off and I stick it to another small piece of LR. But not right through the middle or stem.
