RE: [APD] what is this plant?

Now that I finally got my 2x36 bright kit set up tonight and can actually
see this plant properly, I'm curious to know what it is.  A friend gave it
to me about 6 months ago, but he didn't know what it was either.  So far, it
hasn't really died, but it hasn't grown any.  The roots are brown and very
hard, the same consistancy as the stem - almost like a tree branch without
any leaves.
I've done a lot of looking around but haven't found a picture of anything
that resembles it yet.  Right now it's about 2.5" tall with the roots being
about 1-1.5".


Hey, Jon,

Looks like an unhappy African Bolbitis to me (Bolbitis heudelotii). Pull it
out of the substrate and tack it's rhizome to the wood and I bet it'll be
happier.  8)
