The Perfect Houseplant
I found this really cool plant called the Amazing Dinosaur Plant. Supposedly it pre-dates the dinosaurs, survived through their destruction, made it through the ice age and continues to thrive to this day in the 21st century.

What's truly amazing about this plant is that it can dry up and hibernate for as long as 50 years at a time. During this time it will curl up and travel around with the wind like a tumbleweed in search of water. Once it finds moisture it can fully rejuvenate in one day. This death and resurrection process is then repeated for hundreds of years.

Finally a plant that you can forget to water, watch it die, and not care at all. It's the perfect house plant!

    That's incredible! (And DOES sound like the perfect houseplant for me--at least until it starts rolling around the living room!) ;)

    Wow, that is truly amazing. Had to check to see it wasn't still April Fool's Day before I commented ;)

    I'll have to think about getting one of these for The Warden. I think she finally figured out that plants need water now, but it might still be a good gift for her.

    Miz Margie, I love it. Can we get the DNA or whatever and give it to humans? No, I guess that would not be a good idea what with global warming, wars everywhere, crime, poverty, overcrowding and so forth. Once down here is enough for me! Love ya, GA Peach
