So can you see what this is? We think it looks like a snail's head. But it's really a stalk of lemongrass Mom got at the store and stuck in some water to root. Apparently it's much quicker than growing from seeds. And it was - just over a week after it was stuck in some water these little roots were visible. But since we already had seeds we've stuck this one in a large pot and sown seeds around it. Time will show if the seedlings will seem to catch up or not.
Also - we think it's a surprisingly good photo, it's taken with the phone (as usually, lately).
