    Thought we had totally lost our little cordyline "Americana". :sad3: Its first offshoot (shown in the first pic at the top of the page) eventually died, then the main plant died off, too. The stem shrivelled up halfway down but then stopped dying off. Then, two months ago, we saw a small green growth at the base of its stem. Whoopee!! :apgw:

    Unfortunately, something ate it :whack!: & it didn't develop any further. :( For nearly two months there was no sign of any life at all & I was seriously thinking of tossing the remains of the plant out. The thing was that the stem still looked alive so gave the cordyline another chance.

    Sooooooooo, you can guess how thrilled I was when I was walking up to our front entrance this morning & could see some green in the cordyline's pot which is right beside the entrance. On closer examination, this is what we saw. :excited: :cool3: :bravo: There appear to be four new shoots!! They weren't visible a few days ago.

    It isn't really a bother Dawn, as its inside spot is only about a metre from its outside spot. :lol2: All we have to do is slide open the patio door/window, pick up the pot, swivel & plonk it down. ;) It just remembering to do it. :whistle:

    Here are some pics taken today to show how quickly these plants are growing. :cool:

    Our cordyline "Americana" offshoots are growing very well. Do hope they will change colour soon, though.

    Something had been chewing the cordyline "Americana" leaves & stopping them from growing as they should. For certain other reasons I moved the pot a mere 20cm (8ins) about four weeks ago & I am amazed at how much it has grown. The munching seems to have ceased& all the new leaves are growing as they should. It is a small plant, anyway & being chewed did not help.

    Here is the latest pic of it. Hasn't it grown!! :smile: Still looks scruffy from all the eaten leaves. That will improve over time.

    The cordyline terminalis "Americana" has continued to grow & bush out. The original coloration seems to be returning, too.

    Here are images of what it looks like now.

    Our cordyline "Americana" is another plant I was going to toss out, as it appeared to be dead. Fortunately, I didn't & it continues to thrive & bush out.

    These images were taken a couple of days ago when, after a very ordinary day weather-wise, I noticed the setting sun highlighting this pretty little plant.

    Looking down on it shows the new growth, with the swirling habit, as seen on the parent plant. These leaves are also showing more of the colour it is supposed to be.

    Just looking at these older images of the cordyline "Americana" I hadn't realised how well it has grown back after looking so completely & utterly dead. Here it is today. Imagine how wonderful it would look if it actually received some attention apart from watering. :blush2:

    The cordyline "Americana" is now hiding in amongst the aechmea fasciata "Primera" plants. Hopefully it will do ok there. It seems to like a shaded spot.
