Three years ago I broke away this dead stump. It was the shape - of a shoe. I let it dry for two years.
Last year I then varnish the stump - and put it into the garden for decoration.
I recently noticed the a plant growth is emerging from the dead stump.
To keep it growing should place the stump into a planter so as the bottom of the stump (boot) is resting on the soil?
Let me know if I have a strategy. Thanks!

What kind of stump was it? It looks like a Ponytail Palm. If you want it to grow, contact with soil is probably important.

It is amazing.
I had the stump on a slab of cement of over two years to sun dry.
Then I varnished the stump - and placed it on a pedestal in the garden. That was last year.
It is now three years later - and this pony, to prove life, declared itself.
