I am experiencing something very puzzling. Please don't laugh at my very first question here. I have come here because of what I am experiencing. On Jan. 29, 2010, my husband and I were moving out-of-state. We were caught in a horrible snowstorm and had to stop unexpectedly overnight at a hotel. The temperatures were absolutely frigid. Our arms were full of everything when checking in and forgot we left our 20 year old plant in the car. When we went out to the car in the morning, the entire plant had died overnight except for just (2) surviving leaves. We weren't sure they would survive, but they did. It is now July 3. During the last several months, to my surprise and delight, seven new leaves grew up bright and healthy. About a month ago, one of the two "original" leaves began to die. I have no idea why. The stem began to turn a dark brown from the bottom and it has taken over a month for this darkness to ascend to the actual leaf itself. The stem is now paper thin. It is now almost completely dead. Here is the very strange happening. The other "original" leaf, which sits across the pot away from the dying "original" leaf, has turned so that it is actually facing the dying leaf. Over the last month it has been bending and turning and stretching itself over across the pot in what looks like an attempt to reach that dying leaf, as if to comfort it or as in mourning. This living "original" leaf has had to purposely cross in front of several of the new leaves that have grown in order to reach the dying leaf. It is now bent down and almost in touch with the dying leaf, short of touching it now by about 1/4 of an inch. This living leaf shows no signs of sickness. The stem is green and decent sized around and the leaf is green. It is simply crossing the entire pot to get to the dying leaf. I have taken multiple pictures of this, but don't know how to post them to actually see what has been happening. I have been watching this leaf do this now, for over a month. I am completely intrigued by what is happening, but have no idea how to explain it. It literally looks like this leaf has been making its way over there to comfort this dying leaf or is experiencing mourning. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this or can someone who is studied in horticulture give a possible explanation for this? I have actually felt sadness for the one "original" living leaf. Anybody got any answers? I'd appreciate it!
