Hi!
This morning I did a serious cleaning and weeding, so while I was at it I saw a strange thing on Spartacus Adorned. The scape grew almost horizontal, and then from a bract I saw something strange. Is it a proliferation or just some kind of leaves?

The scape where the prolif comes from is still alive and has buds ready to open.
I should let it there doing his own things then cut one inch above and one inch below the prolif growing point, right? Does it need some special care while it grows on the scape?

It looks like a scape to me, and it opened one flower. Very vigorous! Congratulations on your first proliferation! Hurray!

The proliferation is growing from the scape. Leave the scape for now so that the prolif can get bigger. I do cut the scape above and below the prolif when it is bigger and all the buds have bloomed out. I put it just above the water in a container with the lower part of the scape IN the water. It will eventually grow roots to reach the water. I mist it daily and keep it in a semi-shady spot. When roots form, then I just transplant it to a container (or the ground). That is my method. It typically works for me unless I forget to keep water in the container. (Which has happened in the past.)

The scape should stay green (especially below the prolif) and will continue to nourish and support the immature plant. As the prolif plant gets bigger, the mother plant scape will eventually start turning brown all over the scape. That's when you want to remove the prolif and put it in a container with water or if you see roots growing from the prolif then you can plant it. Many daylilies produce prolifs. I see it often on spider forms.

Thanks Becky, now I have another thing to babysit daily Hilarious!
It's the first time it happens in my garden. I think that plants finally are mature enough to have a wild growth in every direction, branches, buds, bracts, new fans and proliferations! Never saw a big growth as this year. It can become a problem since the bed are really small, but now I have two friends who would like to have some fan. They both have a big garden, so in the worst scenario I can divide some of my plants and gift to them.

I just posted a picture of Cosmic Kaleidoscope in June Blooms.
Cosmic Kaleidoscope died the first winter I had it, but It made a proliferation and two years later I have a full grown plant that is blooming. I think it has a prolif on it this year. I have proliferations all over my seedlings. Not many on registered daylilies.
I put mine in a container that holds water and make a quick sand mix. (very wet sand) Everytime I can remember, I add water to keep the sand wet. I used a small plastic trash can last year. Just before winter, they are potted up and left outside to survive until spring when they go in the garden. Most of them survive.

I found another prolif, and a couple of tiny fans growing from somewhere inside the original fan. They look as prolif but are not coming from a scape. This year is really an explosion of growth!
