Chinese Evergreen Fruit sprouted!
On Oct. 27 I posted a question about how to grow some chinese evergreen fruit I had swiped from a large indoor plant in a public place.
The fruit was football shaped and maybe 3/4" long, and I could feel a hard seed in each of the 3 fruits. I finally just decided to follow Nature's course--fruit naturally falls to the soil beneath the parent plant and germinates there. Not having any chinese evergreens at the house, I gently tucked each seed into the soil in a pot of arrowhead plants, which have similar growing conditions.
Last week I spied a sprout coming up through the soil, and when I brushed away the surface soil, it was coming from the seed. :)
