I frequently reuse the same pots of soil for propagating cuttings and such. In this pot I have a cutting of Lions Tail rooting. I have no idea what I have had in here previously, but obviously something. What is this thing growing ? I dont think I have anything like it. It has not leaves, just this thing growing out of the soil? Here is the whole plant, with the lions tail beside it.
SOLVED: What in the world?
Fascinating! I hope someone can solve this for you - I want to know what it is..
sorta looks like some kind of lily out of control. hehe probably be awsome when it open.
It looks like a Camassia without the leaves...but that would not be possible.
Strange, huh. I have never seen anything like it. No leaves. Will have to keep a close eye on it. If that is a bloom, I will post a pic when it blooms.
Nope, good thought though. I have some naked ladies and they dont look like that.
I read the link provided by Kennedyh and wrote to the DG person who reviewed the plant and asked him to come to this thread and please help identify the plant since he knows it.
Great idea! Whatever it is , I dont think I planted it. I have never seen anything like it either. Just shoots up out of nowhere. Strange. Perhaps once it blooms we shall get a better idea of what it is.
It might be a coralroot orchid but I'd need to see it bloom to be sure. Please post a pic when open and we will confirm....I can't say I've ever seen one growing in a pot. It certainly looks like some sort of saprophytic plant based on the leafless stem, but it also reminds me of some bulbous plant that also blooms without leaves...problem is, I can't remember what that bulb might be!
Thank you for answering my email and trying to help out! Arlene
Well, I hope it doesnt take too long to bloom. It is driving me nuts. But thanks for trying.
The stem is kind of fuzzy too. Just weird how it grew out of nowhere. Not a leaf at all.
IIeeekkk...I hope it is 'nt some kind of alien ...send down to earth to take over...LOL..
Ahhh, The Day The Triffids Came To Earth. Could be. Will watch and see if it starts spitting out poison and trying to take over the world.
What was the plant in "Little Shop of Horrors"? I think I had a Brugmansia once that grew like that!
I think Nun's Orchid has leaves. But I believe it is some type of native orchid that doesnt have leaves.
Hmmmm. I have some of that elsewhere and there is no fuzz on the stem.
I'm just one of the ones who always feel we gardeners are so impatient and yet, here we are, lined up just waiting patiently for the answer. Arlene
I agree with luvsgrtdanes--looks like asparagus but NOW the fuzz--please keep us posted. Certainly a member of the lily family like scilla or ? Looks much like a lions tail itself, doesn't it.
Irish wolfhound/ St Bernard
i 'm not being pat. its driving me to nervous wreck . someone must know??? i hope?/ blessings all.
It's definitely not any asparagus that I have ever seen. It looks more like an Amaryllis stalk to me, but don't know if they are ever hairy or not. Just another thought.
