Hmm...I wonder if I could grow this plant from the detached piece laying on the ground? But more importantly is it appropriate to pick up a discarded piece of plant that could potentially produce a plant that the plant that the vendor is asking $10 for? I didn't ponder the question long before taking a brief look around, picking up the abandoned stem, and high-tailing it to my vehicle like it was contraband.
My precious find is now getting a nice drink in its new home. I will let you know the results!
