It Ain't Over Till ...



It's been almost 4 months since Stefan had his surgery. That's a long time to be in the plant ICU. I have to say he was looking dead. I thought it was the compost for Stefan. I should have had more faith! Check out those promising bumps!




Obviously Stefan not dead at all. He's making a comeback. I guess it's silly to become attached to a dracaena marginata that can be replaced anywhere for a few dollars, but after almost 20 years, I've gotten used to having him around. Now what to do with the stem cuttings that are also sprouting? Pot them up of course, but do I have room for a big dracaena family?

It is amazing how some plants will take such a drastic cut and come back!!

How great that your plant is going to pull through! You must be a good nurse. ;)

4 months is along time to wait for signs of life. It is a good thing you did not give up before the first encouraging growth signs began.

Good for your Stefan, keep trying! I have some overwintered plants that I'm trying to bring back to life, but things look pretty bleak. But I'll keep trying, like Stefan.
