Thanks for the input, Jenn, and congrats on your new baby lotus twins!
My little bulb is still growing, slowly but steadily plugging away! The original sprout has 6 small leaves on it still - but they've spread out quite a bit from the picture at the beginning of this post, and each individual leaf has grown, too - they've gotten their red spots, and a little root system - the second one has 3 TIIIINNNYYY leaves now - the leaves are pinhead small, but they're there! I'm still pretty convinced that it is two separate plants growing from the one bulb - they kind of go off in different directions, and I can see that they each have one main stem - both are still attached. I've decided to leave them alone for now, and see what they do. I really don't want to risk losing either of them!
Please let me know how your freshly detached little lotus does - and the new one still attached. I wonder how many plants we can get out of a single bulb? Did you happen to take any pictures?
