Default How is this possible

I have two Zebrina Rojo, one in ground, another in a pot. Both are doing well.

A month ago I moved the one in a pot near the other in ground one to conceal the boat on the side of my house according to city restrictions.

The potted sample was not rooting from the drain hole before I moved it.

Here's the rub. A good 5 feet from where the pot was, there is a little 3" Zebrina Rojo growing in the ground close to a couple of other plain banana plants. None ever had red / burgundy leaves on juveniles in the 9+ years I'm here.

So, how is it possible for me to have a little what appears to be a Zebrina near where the potted specimen was?
