    It is a member of the Iris family. No idea which type though.

    I think that's what a co-worker of mine calls "Walking Iris" and he tends to be right about such things.

    Hello [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, indeed, it is what is commonly named as Walking Iris, it is part of the Iris group and it is also known as Tropical Iris. It's formal name is Neomarica longifolia.

    It porduces flowers from late, late Winter, almost early Spring to early Fall. If its flowers are pollinated the ovary in that pollinated flower will start to porduce seeds, but most of the time these seeds never mature and if they get to mature most of the time they are steriles.

    If the flowers is not pollinated it will porduce a new plantlet from each faded flower. Since this plant produce a sucession of flowers for each flower stalk, by late Summer or early Fall it will have its flower stalks full of new plantlets hanging. You can divide these plantlets and then you will have countless new plants. Or you can do what you did, just divide plants from the rhizomes.

    thanks for the input. My young plants are derived according to your explaination,but without me knowing if it's the right way. I was only trying, and surprise, after 5 weeks roots were coming out the bottom of the pot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Hello Robert! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Well then prepare yourself to have your place invaded by these plants, they are really prolific and beautiful [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    You will really enjoy them. If you plant them in the ground they can be spread rapidly and sometimes they can be a little invasive. But you can control this by dividing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Enjoy... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
