Eye Candy Friday - The Little Plant that Could

I potted this plant about a year ago, layering different kinds of soil in the vase to make it pretty. I used about an inch of aquarium gravel for the bottom layer to provide drainage. When we moved, it got stuck in a box at the last minute, and didn't get pulled out until 2 weeks ago, when Mike discovered it still in the box in the garage. It had survived the heat of the garage in the complete absence of light and only had two yellowed leaves. It went straight into my greenhouse window and had been enjoying regular waterings with water from the fish tank, which has made the remaining foliage green right up. Now that's what I call a will to live!
