Don Juan has shown some new growth this week, but I’m not really sure what to do about it.  Unlike his recent new leaves, which emerged above the existing leaves, two little leaves have sprouted underwater among the roots.  There are roots above and below the little leaves, so I can’t just pull them above water…  Any suggestions or knowledge would be appreciated–so far Don Juan’s diet still consists only of tap water at room temperature. Here are a few images of the new growth:

Don Juan’s sunny spot on the shelf–with just a quick glance it seems some of the leaves are reflected in the curve of the jar…

…but upon closer inspection it turns out that there are two leaves emerging (submerging?) from the plant and mixed in with the root system. My husband has dubbed these leaves “submarine leaves.”

The rest of the plants responded really well to the plant food they were given last week–I’ll try to post some more pictures tomorrow.  Between our internet being down for a few days this week and my phone dying, it’s been hard to keep up on the blog… I’ll try to get back in the swing of things this week though.  Thanks to our neighbor, we’ve added two more houseplants this weekend too!
