No ID...any idea?

birdsnbloomsNovember 5, 2012

While watering and cleaning leaves, I found this, whatever it may be, on the floor.

Anyone know it's ID? If so, how to root?

Thanks, Toni

Doesn't that connect your ipod to your computer, or maybe headphones? ;-)

That's a plenema. For giving sick plants an enema.

Can't hotlink to the image, but that's a Cissus tuberosa piece. Which looks like what you have.

That still doesn't address the key problem here, namely that Cissus tuberosa pieces either grow from seeds or other Cissus tuberosas, and don't just /occur out of nowhere/.

I love purple's answer the most LOLOLOL, that really made me laugh out loud...

I have no idea what it is (but I was thinking some kind of those weird Cissus succulents, do you even own any?), but these answers are so funny...

LOL, Flora, Larry, Purple...you gals and guys are too funny. Love your replies..
A laugh to start the morning. :)

Purple, I literally dicionary.com'd plenema, of course No Results. Then I read the second part of your sentence..
No wonder Results weren't found..lol.
Which part of a plant would an enema be inserted? What happens afterwards? Does it spew seeds? :)

Amccour. I have 3 Cissus..the one w/thick trunk, C. Peruvian and C. Antarctica. The last two are out.

Thick-trunk Cissus is in a very small pot..there's no way a root could have loosened from soil unless it did a Houdini.

SS....No packages, no UPS, no peanuts..It's been a while since I've ordered new plants, besides, none resembled the 'thiny.'

It had to come from one of my plants, the problem is, which plant?

I too assumed Cissus/thick-trunk, but foliage looks nothing like the 'thing.'

SS, you too are funny..bulemic squash..lol.
What is weird paper?

I hoped someone could ID this plant or root..whatever it is, so I could 'attempt' rooting..problem is which end goes in soil?

I buried the entire piece in the soil with D. marginata...If it roots or is a root, I hope it sprouts. If not, no biggie, however I am curious.

Thanks, Toni

Toni, glad you were laughing! Life's too short to not crack up often.

"Which part of a plant would an enema be inserted?"
In the, um, rump, of course!

"What happens afterwards? Does it spew seeds?"
Oh, it spews alright...! Sometimes seeds, sometimes potted baby plants! And the mama plant turns completely healthy and deep green (if applicable) immediately!

I just can't get past how one of your plants grew this thing without you noticing. Didn't realize you were genuinely asking, thought you were seeing if WE knew. It does look like the link Amccour pasted. Are these tubers that the plant makes above-ground? If so, it looks like it's made to lay on the soil surface. Maybe it fell off (where you couldn't see it) while plants were being moved inside and now somehow it got moved to where you could see it.

Oooh my god. Just flipped through your Flickr account and so the black eye pics. Smacked in the face with a dolly. Reminds me of my days working as a custodian :(

Amccour..by golly, I think you've got it...they're twins..

Purple, thanks for posting Amccour's link. Don't know how you do it..

Yes, I can use a laugh. You should see the shiner I have...might start another thread about the dangers of hauling plants inside..Dh took pics last night..
Too embarrassed to leave the house, so don't know if I'll vote today.

Yes, life IS too short. We all need to smile/laugh at least once a day, if not more..Laughing is good for the soul.

Girl, you are funny...love your explanation. Too bad it doesn't apply to humans. lol.

Purple, there are times I miss a lot..For instance, I didn't see a plant in bloom. Afterwards, I find faded flowers.

One advantage of misting/fiddling w/individual plants is finding flowers or, on the reverse side, insects.

My Cissus has one trunk..Before dormancy, leaves were wrapped around a U-shaped trellis..
Is it possible the 'thing' grew between leaves? If so, that would explain this mytery.

I believe you're correct. If 'thingy' was attached to a stem, it could have dropped when plants were carried indoors.

Thanks...

I would NOT let that stop me from voting! If anyone asks, say someone was trying to stop you from voting but you beat the crap out of them & here you are to vote! "You should see the other guy!"

To make a link, remove the spaces in this line, the 4 spaces next to :

What link says on the page

A link to Gardenweb would look like this (with spaces removed):
Gardenweb

And show up like this:
Gardenweb

if you you were in florida - i'd say this looks like mangrove fruit/sprout, but they do get a couple of little leaves on top eventually, not strings.
so then may be it's a giant pencil cactus - broken piece that blew in? looks very alien to me. can we get a close up?
