    Plant bulb? Spider Egg? Peanut??

    Anyone have any idea what the heck this is? I found it buried under about a half inch of soil in with my CPs. I have a sarracenia and 3 dionaea. It was right between the sarracenia pot and the red dragon dionaea...







    I've only had those plants in there for this season. They were kept outside my window sill for most of it. I have no idea what this thing is. Any thoughts? I would love to narrow it down to animal, vegetable, or mineral!

    It's something called a "peanut". Pronounced: "pee-NUHT"

    Are you sure? I'm away from it right now, but even though it's peanut shaped, I really don't think it is... It doesn't have those perpendicular lines nor the same kind of texture. It does look roughly the same shape, and it's brownish, but I really don't think it is.

    Also I have no idea how a perfectly intact peanut would get completely buried in my soil. You can see that there is some sphagnum on one small piece of the thing, and its stuck there pretty good, it was holding onto a good chunk of soil before i pulled it up.

    Welcome to TF! I'll bet Ben's bottom dollar that it's a peanut.

    Hmmph. When I get home tomorrow, I guess I will try cracking it open and seeing what happens... If it is a peanut, then comes the mystery of where on earth it came from and how it got there...

    Thanks.

    Maybe your plants went to a baseball game while you were away. Welcome to TF.
