My Little Rescue (pic)
I wish I would have taken a picture of this plant back in October when I first got possession of it. It was a pathetic looking limp three leaves on a looong curled stem.
I came to this forum to read about how to save it, as it belonged to my mother who is now deceased and no one took care of it for a long time.
I cut the stem down to where I saw green and then scraped it. I dipped it in rooting hormone and planted it in this little 2" pot, covered it with a plastic water bottle as a dome and hoped for the best, not really expecting it to survive.
Slowly throughout the winter I noticed it was staying firm and greening up a bit and then it suddenly started growing more and more leaves!
Here it is today and it is still in the little 2" pot!
I am so happy with it. I want to transplant it to a different pot, but I also wanted to enjoy it blooming for a little bit. It measures about 6" across now, so when I do transplant it should I use a 3" or 4" pot?
Thanks to all the great info on this forum, I saved this little remembrance of my mother.
