I thought maybe this would be fun, or it might come off as asinine, who knows.
I happen to have a plant that at this moment, is unidentifiable, due to prior damage / destruction / general-mayhem. The first new growth appeared a couple days ago and I caught it just as it peeked through the sphagnum top-dressing.
Every other day or so I'll post a new pic of progress until a new leaf has been formed and its identity verified. Until then, have fun guessing and making conjecture, and see if you're right.
I just took this yesterday, and checking this morning, that nub is already taller than the piece it came up against. It won't take long to get a full leaf!
I have a vague inkling of which of two (2) plants it might be, but my memory is hazy and my I.D. tags long gone.
Here is another one in the same "recuperation pot", a little further a long. Not sure what it is either, though there's a chance they may be the same plant, and somehow both halves of the rhizome managed to survive the trauma.
I'll update both tomorrow.
(Edit) I guess, since there are so many varieties out there, it would only be fair to narrow it down -a little-. Hint: It's something an amateur could find and obtain through the most basic google search, so nothing fancy or hard-to-find.
