My father always had a green thumb which was something I did not inherit. He seemed to make anything grow. After he retired, he had a greenhouse built by his house. He grew all kinds of plants and spent hours taking care of them. When he was 95, he was no longer able to live alone. We had to move him to a retirement home. He has been there almost 3 years. My sister and I had to take care of the house and the greenhouse. Unfortunately, the greenhouse was neglected. Eventually, the gas heater in the greenhouse broke and we decided that it would be easier to just have it torn down. We gave most of the plants away and kept a few. In the corner, there was this overgrown plant in a big plastic pot. The leaves were brown from lack of water I was going to throw it out but decided to take it home. I didn't know what it was. The leaves looked like long grass. I put in by the window in my spare bedroom and watered it. About 4 months after having it at my house I went in last week and this was what I found!
