Nice Surprise today, 2 Tiny Pups

Hi Everybody,

Happy Summer (finally). Don't know this Sans.'s ID, one of the Baliis or Basebat Bat. Look what I found this morning,

I don't think it even took 6 months (I forgot to make note). I've never propagated this super thick leaf type Sans before.

One of those great things I sometimes do, stick into mix a leaf of something, set aside & forget & then one day, a lovely surprise.

Oops, sorry for the blur, but say hello to the 2 little pups.

Grown on west window, rarely watered, probably knocked out of the pot a time or two, largely ignored.

Am curious to see if the pups' leaves will resemble the parent leaf or not. Fun stuff!

Hi Karen,
Congrats on your new babies. I think this is my favorite time of year for sans. Love to see the new growth poking up thru the soil.

Hi folks,

Thanks for the nice words, yes it's encouraging & rewarding & fun.

Here are some better pix, I'm a bit amazed these pups are coming up in multi-leafed rosettes.

Somehow, I'm surprised how multi-leafed they are when still so small.

Hi pirate_girl,
Could this possibly be a Sansevieria fischeri (old name S. singularis)? Congrats on the pups!
