Back in January, Patrick of Bifurcated Carrots sent me a couple of Yaĉon tubers.
I potted them up as instructed and subsequently, one of the tubers germinated and then, a few weeks ago, the first leaves appeared in the pot.
However the second tuber showed no sign of life.
The first tuber has continued to grow and as you can see is now a healthy plant just waiting for any chance of frost to pass before getting out into the big wide world.
I kept this one watered and checked daily to make sure conditions were right for the second...but nothing
this morning, when, comme d'habitude, I watered big brother and there, just peeping out into the daylight were the tiniest pair of leaves.
So Yaĉon the baby brother has made it and hopefully will catch up with his big brother in the big wide world in just a week or two.
