Default Resilient little lasiocarpas.

I had some plants growing in the cellar, under lights, over the winter. One item was a 72 cell tray of Musella lasiocarpa TCs. They got too dry, and turned brown. Then I got some water on them, and they came back. I missed a couple of waterings, and they turned brown again. In the spring, I put the tray outside, and they came back a second time. They are now transplanted to 1 gallon pots, and growing well.

I'm good at banana torture too. I had a bordelon corm that I dug up real late in the fall. I was just going to let it freeze because I have plenty of bordelons, but the more times I walked by there, I got to feeling sorry for it! I stuffed it in a potting soil bag to carry it to the greenhouse because I was going to pot it up in there because it was like 25 degrees outside. Then I got a phone call and had to leave the house suddenly to pick up greenhouse supplies that came in. I didn't have time to pot it. Well, it was cold outside, and I didn't want to put it in the house, and the garage (heated) was locked, so I threw it under the bench in the greenhouse that was heated, and left. thought I'd pot it up later that day or tomorrow. Totally forgot about it...saw the bag under the bench several times and it still didn't make any connection in the lil brain of mine, because I save the used potting bags to use as trunk liners for customers cars in the spring, and I just thought that's what it was after a day or two.... Sat some pots in front of it...well spring came and that darned thing grew, poked it's way out of the bag, grew through 2x2" square mesh bench top, and put out some leaves. So I noticed it then, and cut the top off so I could get it out and potted it up. don't even know which one it is now, or if I sold it but it was a bordelon.
