Uh-ooo ... now THIS is a challenge.

It looks like a newly sprouted plant: a zuccini or such. Newly sprouted anyway ...

But it also looks like it is on the roof of something. What is that tiling down in the RH corner.

This is intruiging, Martina.

Julie, when I posted this some minutes ago I was thinking: oh my god, hopefully nobody asks, I simply can't explain it in English .... .
But I will try: since this is a macro shot the thing is about 2-3 mm in height, sitting on the leaf of a Crassula ovata, thinking it is a grown up crassula itself ... not really a offshoot, but kind of ... .

I thought it was part of a ginger lily, very similar, but it's a jaad plant?

Martina said...

pj, yes. In German it is called "money tree" oder "penny tree"
