Thanks to a passing animal who either liked what she was fed and left a gift seedling or one who couldn’t digest the dinner offering, this strange plant appeared in a pot full of dirt. Just waiting on the back porch for something like this to happen..
The cup-like buds appear, grow, eventually turn black and hang around.
