I'm really impressed you have a list of what you've grown.

If I'm lucky I turn up a label,  and then I think... I wondered where that had gone.

What is this?

Stick it in the soil in a sunny position.   Feed it,water it. Keep the cat and kids away from it. The bottom leaves often do drop off as the plant grows.

 It wont survive outside in winter but you can easily root  a foot long cutting in water over winter in the window bottom.

Have a ferret around  in the soil. You might find they are still very small..or you could have a  nice surprise.
