Nice photo there!!

Wonder if it will continue to grow like that on new growth or disappear as the new growth gets bigger?

I think they disappear pretty quickly. Shame.

Well it is a bit off topic but I thought I would add that almost all cacti studied have leaf primordia or vestigial leaves in the areole. They are so modified in most species as to be microscopic. Anyway interesting reading by one of the greats of the plant biology word...Prof J.D. Mauseth, enjoy. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2803597/?iframe=true&width=100%25&height=100%25
