I was curious how a zz would do outside, so I planted this little guy near some sansevierias I have in the ground. All seemed fine until it got decently cold for a while. The leaves started browning back from the tips, and I noticed the other day that the leaves were dead and the stem is shriveled and soft. I pulled it up, and the tuber and roots are still firm and healthy. I repotted it indoors, but can it regrow new shoots, or is it a goner? #please-survive #advice #planthelp #didikillit
Thanks @emch and @crabby58 ! I hope so! 🤞 I tried to pot it with my big zz, but there wasn't any room among the potatoes. 😆 So it got its own tiny pot on the windowsill, where I get to water its zombie corpse until it either grows or I get sick of looking at it and toss it. 🤣
I got this little zz cutting a bit over a year ago, and muddled my way through rooting it. I repotted it maybe 6 months ago, and the tuber was just a little fart 🌱💨, a fraction of the size it is now. I sure didn't expect this giant when I pulled it out of its tiny pot today! The plant hasn't grown even a tiny bit, so I guess it's just been working on roots & tuber! 🤷🏻♀️ I've been curious how a zz would do in the ground in my courtyard, so I planted it out there as an experiment.
