Default Neglected Valery Corm Produced Many Pups

I thought I'd share this photo that I took recently.

Several months ago, I had dug up this huge Valery corm and haphazardly discarded it in a corner. I didn't pay much attention to it, but then I noticed that pups started growing from the unrooted corm. There are 8 pups so far. It only gets an occasional squirt of water as I'm passing by with the hose. This illustrates how resilient these plants can be!
