These 2 fellas have been growing on my Shui Mei for a couple of months.
Any idea what are they?
I'm dun see any roots.
When can I cut and pot it? Esp. the bigger one.

It's not fern. It's mistletoe plant. It's parasitic.

Hi Digitalgate, I think I saw some mistletoe seeds attached to my pomegranate branches. If you are interested, I can pass you the seeds. The seeds are very sticky.

The seeds landed on my pomegranate's stem too. but I've removed them. The seeds are carried here when the sunbirds poop on the branch.

I have been chasing the sunbirds away and they are not even afraid of me. ;)/> Every now and then, I have to scrutinise the branches for any seeds or seedlings which is a daunting task as my pomegranate trees are overhanging the parapet wall.

As space is very very precious for me, I do not favour having a plant at my home. I can pass you the seeds and you can stick to your plant. :rolleyes:/>

Digitalgate, why you want all this plant? I have been sawing them away as it pop up here and there, once I didn't pay attention, it become a tree on my plants, will keep for you if you want, how to keep them alive when I cut it out from my roses, lime ....?
