Daft question, is it possible to propgate in water so you can see the roots grow?

I don't know the origin of the original seed, nor any way of finding out. I'll just enjoy it for what it is.

How would I tell for sure Richard? It's rather a depressed looking plant at the moment with somewhat yellow leaves but it's grown more this year that it ever has done before since I planted it in a better place.
