i was looking into my 'maidens hair' grass today and noticed lower down in the thick of it, what looked like a big, crinkly leaf on the right hand side of the plant. Then tonight (1 hour or so after turning the lights off), I noticed this 'leaf' had moved about an inch to towards the left.

Anyone got any ideas on that? The coloration is pretty much exactly the same as the maidens hair....
