I have a tiny farmhouse in rural PA w/ lots of fields & forest... I enjoy being surrounded by as many plants as possible, both outdoors & in my home!

Strange plant. That leaf in the middle looked like a small green balloon! 😀

@jeatacake Thanks, I LOVE strange plants 😁 The leaves are all flat round discs, but from above they do look like balloons! especially when the leaf edges curl underneath like this, lol

Looking good. How did you get it started...I have a 'grown up' plant and wouldn't mind propagating another. Any tips?

comment
aes239

@littleproverbs I'm not sure 😕 this one is a baby from my mom's larger plant... as far as I know, it just sprouted about an inch away from the base of the original plant... So it seems like maybe they produce seeds somehow? Sorry I can't be more helpful... Good luck though! 😀

@uaskigyrl Thank you, it's (the offspring of) a family heirloom... the original plant came across the ocean with my great-grandmother when emigrating from Poland! 😊

@susanandsteve I definitely will... 😊 I was given a cutting by my mom before (way back in college) which unfortunately died 😕 so I've been waiting literally YEARS for another chance! Determined not to screw it up this time! 😁

This is a #cutting of a plant I received from my mom, who got a cutting from her mom (my grandmother), who got a cutting from her mom (my great-grandmother), who brought the original with her to the US when emigrating from Poland!
