Posted at C&S: Check twice before throwing it out

Hi All,

Rather than post at both places I thought I'd mention it here & refer you there. While they look mostly like green specks, they are, in fact, a trio of tiny, baby Sans. which have just popped up from a forgotten/abandoned rhizome.

These plants are so determined to live NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Thanks Stush,

Well great job remains to be seen, let's see how the little pups develop, but I got a feelin' they're gonna be really, really cute!

They already look pretty cute. Very fun! It's always fun to have nice surprises pop up.

Hiya folks,

Here's an update on my baby Sans. coming off this rhizome. It's starting to show its height.

Of the 3 pups that sprouted, one much taller than the rest.

I mist it sometimes & water it fairly often.

I unpotted it today, roughed up the underside w/ a tiny rake & then soaked it in some water. Potted it up afterwards into some mix & a bit deeper pot. We'll see what happens.

Karen,

so many times i just dumped rhizomes because they looked dead dry to me. thanks for sharing the progress. did you bury rhizome in soil? it looks kind of on a top or is it just for the picture. Congrats

Hi Inna,

It was on top, that's pretty much how I found it so I left it (after I'd removed the dead, dried leaf which had been attached to it).

After I roughed up bottom of the rhizome & soaked it yesterday, I did bury it deeper in other mix (w/bit more organics) in a small container, as I needed this one, which is how I discovered this happy surprise in the first place.

Thanks for the congrats. I'll post updates.

RE: Sprouting Rhizome Update

Well hi again,

I meant to post 2 wks later, when the taller one took off. Here they are a month later, pretty fast growing little guys.

Look at the visible roots at the base of the taller one.

That is very cool! Isn't it wild how they start as a little spike and those first few leaves start zooming up and getting fatter? Fascinating!

Updating this while I've got the chance. This is eleven months later.

These little guys are coming along nicely (tho' I lost 1 pup along the way).
