Is this new growth?
As a new not-plant-killer I am pretty clueless about how plants really grow.

I recently trimmed back my adansonii because she was a bit leggy (I’ve upped her light) and really I have no idea what I am looking for with new growth. I noticed yesterday that there was a bit of a bulge at the next node from the cut, and have noticed today that it is a bit bigger, but also that the next node along also has a bulge.

Is this where a new vine will grow from? And does this mean I am getting two vines from one cut? #HappyPlants #NewGrowth #ChopAndProp #Monstera #MonsteraMob #adansonii #plantnewbie #notaplantkiller

Some plants thrive being cut back! My philodendron brasil gave me 4 new growth points from one cut! This is a joy 🀩 looks like your plant originally had two growth points and now could have 3! Those nubs growing are what we call nodes. They’re full of stem cells, so the plant can use it to regrow if it loses its original growth point. Plants are smart, they knew they’d get eaten or broken in the wild so they made back up plans better than we could 🀣 Looking forward to future updates 😊🫢
Also just noticed this leaf popping out too! Before I cut her she had one vine. How am I keeping these not just alive, but thriving? 🀯
@HoyaAddict i tried Googling what it would look like but everything I found was about the growth of the cuttings. It is honestly fascinating watching all my plants grow.
@mysugaredlife This is the fun of plant keeping! Enjoy the show 😍 I love watching my plants progress day by day!
I LOVE how plants are so resilient!!
