I give you two examples of plants and their power to live, no matter the circumstances. First an agave I spied at Garden Fever (yes ok, I go there FAR TOO OFTEN...is there anything wrong with that?), I love it's determination and ability to push out the pup even though it's living within a tiny plastic pot.
And secondly tonight I found a tiny sign of live on the mound of death that has been my Chinese Yellow Banana (Musella lasiocarpa). I really thought it was gone, but just on the chance that there was still a little life in there I had not dug it up, just planted a Tetrapanax in front of it to hide the death hole. Can this tiny little green leaf actually become a plant of any size? Only time will tell, but I'm willing to give it plenty of that, plus water and maybe even more fertilizer.
