Rooted mango from cutting.
Don't have the most recent shot of it, but it's starting another flush under my basement lights. I took the cutting last summer. Heat + the fact that it was taken from a seedling mango (juvenile growth) probably contributed to the success, since mangoes are particularly difficult from cuttings.
Not sure what I'll do with it, since mangoes take a while to bear fruit -- over 8 years likely. And I don't have room, but it was an interesting experiment.
