    That’s normal. Plants of that type really shed their leaves that way and regrow new ones. No need to worry at all. :)

    Wow, your dumb cane has so many branches. They grow in the wild in our area and they just grow upwards and branch off with several leaves. I’ve never seen one like yours that branch off to the side!

    Excellent! Love this!

    Not really sure but can only surmise.. curiosity was triggered by your comment so I consulted both friends Google and Wikipedia.

    Says here that the disambiguation of term“ ‘The Wandering Jew’ is a mythical immortal man whose legend began to spread in Europe in the 13th century.[1] The original legend concerns a Jew who taunted Jesus on the way to the Crucifixion and was then cursed to walk the earth until the Second Coming”

    I’m guessing it’s referring to the persistent determination to grow and creep into larger areas and/or invasiveness of the plant? Wikipedia says “It is commonly available and used as a houseplant and groundcover, aggressively colonizing new areas when disturbed. Propagated by cuttings, this plant can be moved or manipulated easily as its runners cling lightly to the ground (if used as cover)”

    Wandering Jews/Tradescantia Zebrina have also been classified as severely invasive in places such as South Africa and Galapagos Islands, to the point that carrying any cuttings or propagation in the former is banned, so maybe it refers to its tendency to travel and “wander”?

    Just speculating and throwing in my two cents.

    [–] Another one of the wild plants in our yard. Anybody know what it is? vannana 2 points ago in whatsthisplant

    Not quite. Our area has been relatively untouched as the property has been in the family for decades and has never been developed or lived in (other than my immediate family, which is like 5 people lol). We’re only developing now as it seems like a good idea to put the land to use. We’ve been clearing out some of the flora to make way for the structures and I’m trying to ID as we go along so I can at least preserve most of them.

    Thanks! We’re building on this location of about 2.5 acres of land, the variety of wild flora is stunning. I’ve been working on identifying most of them, especially the prettier ones as I would like to use the naturally-occurring plants in the landscaping to reduce our ecological footprint as well as to stay true to the original ecology.

    Thanks! Looks like your ID is spot on.

    This plant is located in the Philippines.

    [–] Found this growing in the wild. Tropical Asian country. Anybody know what it is and is it worth planting in a garden for the blooms? vannana 2 points ago in whatsthisplant

    I think so too! We want to do as little damage to our local ecology when we build our small project so I was hoping to just relocate the endemic plants and flora when landscaping if they were pretty enough not to be considered “weeds”!

    [–] Looking for a new fantasy book too read. vannana 4 points ago in booksuggestions

    Look up Robin Hobb. She has excellent books with storylines that tie up in the long run. I couldnt put her books down once I’ve started

    [–] Looking for a new fantasy book too read. vannana 4 points ago in booksuggestions

    Great but unfinished for x number of years. I loved the first two books, which is precisely why it’s torture to be waiting 8 years for the last book. T___T

    [–] Can rubber tree be pruned without killing it? I don't know if it will fit through the door to go back outside this spring vannana 3 points ago in houseplants

    Yes, they do very well in loose soil to make it easier for them to root. Make sure they’re not disturbed AT ALL while rooting as they’re very sensitive at that stage. Water daily and put in a relatively dim area until they look like they’re established then you can transfer to an area with morning sun. Be careful moving though!

    This is how we propagated ours. Literally drove by someone’s house and saw the rubber tree, saw the resident granny on the balcony and asked for some cuttings lol.

    Sometimes you just have to wonder what’s going on in their head to think it’s totally fine lol. Entitled little turds.

    [–] What part of being an adult were you absolutely not prepared for? vannana 8 points ago in AskReddit

    So sorry you and your wife are dealing with this. No one deserves to be sick like that and I hope things look up for her soon. Sending healing thoughts from halfway across the world. ❤️
