Like Francesca, I have seen daylilies do
this.....but way up at the top of a bloomstalk, and one of those little babies
sent out roots. I planted it, and it grew into an adult daylily
plant. There are 4 possibilities I can see for you to try:
1.) Wait and see if one of those swellings at the bottom of the
bloomstalk puts out roots and looks like it is forming a rhizome and then cut it
and plant it.
2.) Some plants can be reproduced by dusting a sideshoot with a
rooting stimulant powder and then wrapping damp sphagnum moss or damp peat moss
around that and then wrapping in a light plastic and tying or rubber-banding the
plastic and waiting until it forms roots.
3.) Dampening the joint there, then making a cut and dusting it with
rooting hormone powder and planting it.
4.) Take one of those narrower "rubbery" plastic pots and, using tin
snips, cut a slit from the rim down to the bottom and then cut the bottom
of the pot out. You then have a "collar" which you can set around the
stalk and can then fill the pot with damp potting soil up over the joint and see
if the thing roots.
Other than that, there's not much other to do than
just wait to see what happens naturally.
