Hi can anyone tell me what are the teets on my cordyline tree? They all point down. Will they sprout?




They are probably prop/buttress roots. Not seen this before. Some one will know.

Most likely an aerial root . Common on Cordylines and some yucca's at the bottom of leaf bases.

I meant to write possibly not probably. I didn't know they produced aerial roots. learn something new every day.
