    It's a new lead. Well, I sure hope it is. The plant was a 4-bulb, 3-leaf backbulb division when I received it. Within a week, all 3 leaves dropped. There are a few of these nubs on the rhizome and elsewhere on the plant. There are also roots forming around the growth. I hope it grows up into a large, healthy plant.
