Anyone else ever have plants come back from the grave?
This is weird. Since setting up my 120 about three months ago, I've had two plants come back from the grave.
Story goes like this: I got back into planted tanks in November of 2004 after a several year hiatus. I set up a 45 gallon, and two of the plants included were Heteranthera zosterofilia (stargrass) and Nymphaea zenkeri (dwarf lily). Both grew well. In fact the stargrass grew too well, and I decided to pull it out in April of 05. Then in June last year, I moved. After the move, my lily died. It didn't seem to like the new water chemistry.
Well, I set up this 120 in early April of this year. As I was tearing down the 45 I found the bulb from the lily. For lack of other options, I just buried it in the substrate of the 120. Boy was I surprised when it sprouted a month later, after having been dead and gone (I thought) for 10 months. As if that wasn't enough, I just looked in my tank today and noticed a strange plant in the back of my field of E. tenellus. It's a stem of stargrass! I haven't had stargrass in my tank (to my knowledge) for over a year, but there it is.
I think that's weird. Anyone else have similar experiences?
