A Shoot!

In March this year I found a tiny piece which had broken off a chain of hearts plant (Ceropegia woodii). I brought it home, and popped it in a tiny pot to see if it would root.

The stem part shrivelled up, leaving just one leaf. That leaf has sat on the window-sill for 8 months. I've watered it from time to time, as the leaf was still green, even if it showed no sign of growing.

A couple of months ago I was given a hanging planter with a lovely, thriving chain-of-hearts in it. But I still didn't give up on my single leaf on the window-sill.

And look what I found today:
It's growing!
