There is a strange wild plant in Guadaloupe caĆ¼ed the "life plant." If a leaf be broken off and pinned by the stem to the wall oL a warm room each of the angles between the curves of the leaf margin soon throws out a number of very white tentacles or roots, and soon a tiny new plant begins to sprout, and in the course of a week or two is two or three inches in height. When the old leaf shrivels the new plant is cut off and planted. The plant bears curious red and yellow blossoms.
