Thank you, Deeka!


I'll be sure to continue to show them so we can confirm what they are. Hoping they send up some flowers soon!

Hey there! Looking great!

Did you reuse old dirt for the seeds? Or did you use new soil? This will tell us whether these came up from the dirt, or from the packet of seeds you put in.

Do me a favor and pull one out (gently, of course, shaking out the dirt) and show us what the base and roots look like.

My bet is Easter Lily. Did you have some, and then discard them? Or, was the pot near some lilies outside?

Nothing like Lily of the Valley.

That much I can tell you so far. The bulb will tell me more.

This thing has me baffled. Whatever it is, I've never seen it before....at least I don't recognize it yet.



Hey,

it could be a "Bird of Paradise" plant or a "Variegated Masoniana"

Thanks, WizGrower.


I guess we'll be seeing for sure, shortly.


Tsilentseed....


Yes, I can absolutely fulfil your request, first thing in the morning.


As for the soil....I cannot be certain because I have been known to continue to use old soil, if it's clean. It could have been a combination of both new and old soil. Makes things even more confusing!



I'll get that picture tomorrow so we can see if there's a bulb....

Ok I hope this shot will be good enough because I'm in a rush and need to get out the door but here is a dug up little plant...

Wiz, not a bird of paradise, and not a Sansevieria.

Holly - Thanks ! That pins it down. That is an Easter lily, or another type of Asiatic lily.

Well this is terrific news...but wow!!


I dont actually have any lily seeds at this time, but I did in the past. I also had a mini lily plant from the nursery awhile back, and it quite possibly may have blown some seeds around into other pots because it sat in an open sill for many months.


I still can't remember what color they were though, or exactly how they looked. I just deal with too many plants throughout the years and so it's easy to lose track. It'll be a surprise to see the flowers again.


Thanks for your help, Tsilentseed.

This has been a fun thread. I really enjoyed reading it and waiting for the mystery to unfold.

Very nice plant, the purple greenish foliage on the plant coming up on the left looks very tropical

Thank you again Tsilentseed...for helping my to figure this mystery out. You're a very knowledgeable person.



Thanks Bzmom5 and glad you are enjoying this thread. I'm still planning to show more pictures as things develop....and hopefully eventually bloom.



Thanks WizGrower....that's a succulent 'cutling' that I rooted in the same pot with the lilies.

Thanks, WizGrower!


That is actually just a little unnamed succulent cutting but it's now rooted into a 'cutling'.
