    Plant ID request .......

    In my pot of Alocasia Poly, this thing has sprung up. Growth has been rather slow -- it first appeared sometime this winter. It has never produced any leaves. Each branch simply bifurcates every so often. I haven't repotted Poly in at least a couple years, so if there was a dormant seed in the media it took its sweet time germinating. Can't imagine from whence the seed may have come otherwise as its an indoor plant.

    On another forum, a kind soul suggested it may be Psilotum nudum. Figured it would not be a bad idea to inquire of the "hive mind" here as well -- whether to confirm or supply other options.

    If you carefully dig it up and don't find any roots, your tentative id is probably correct.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Definitely Psilotum nudum. Wouldn't even bother to uproot.
