Mysterious Faux Pebbles

Posted in "North Carolina" by helenofmarlowe on April 25, 2014

They looked kind of like pebbles, large pebbles, about the size of avocado pits.

But I could tell I was looking at something organic.   I picked up a couple of these organic pebbles and tossed them into a canvas bag.

We were in St. Augustine, stopping over for a few days on the way down to West Palm Beach.  So they must have been in that canvas bag for almost two weeks, forgotten — I’ll stop myself before I get too carried away and say forgotten and forlorn.

After getting back home to NC, I found the forgotten pebbles, and put them into water.

And here they are.

Faux Pebbles

Searching the web for a plant ID site, I ran across  Susan    and I’m glad I did.  She has already helped me identify a pineapple lily, and she offered to take a metaphorical stab at my organic pebbles if I post a photo.    I doubt that they’ll want to be planted outside (zone 7) but maybe a pot with sandy soil will be the way to go.

And I will add, as I did in my previous post  “Faux Spring”  that I can no longer control the placement of photos.  Word Press seems to have limited the options.      Either that , or I haven’t figured out the new rules  (a possibility not to be dismissed).

But, that aside, here are the two faux pebbles sitting on a ledge on my back screened porch.

The growth has occurred since, oh, I guess mid-February.


Would love to hear from anyone who can ID these pebble imposters.
