Patience Finally Pays Off = new growth
See this new growth here? This was my New Year's Day present. This is a cutting of H obovata w/ speckles which has sat for a year & a half & done NOTHING. Has 3 leaves & just sat there.
I can't believe this thing has sat so long doing nothing & now, voila, in Winter, no less.
My tag says June 2012 I potted it up (it came apart from some of it gotten for me by a generous someone who I don't see here any more).
Tami B: if you're lurking, this is from the half plant you shared w/ me. The larger plant does fine, puts on new growth at a reasonable rate.
But finding this was such a pleasure (pardon the blur).
Morale of the story is they apparently have their own timing.
