it is kinda ridiculous that we spend our time caring for, talking about, and striving to obtain plants that in other parts of the world are annoying weeds...

do you think they collect dandelions or crab grass in the phillipines and spend their day talking about it in a forum?

im going ot recommend to phil and jeff they start a crab grass forum...

Heck, there's one weed right here in Tallahassee, Florida that has a huge (for a small weed anyway, over 1") pink flower that I think is very pretty, so I uprooted one and potted it up on my windowsill, lol...
 
The flowers are around an inch across, if I remember correctly. "They open in early morning, when sparkling dew coats the sparkling ground, while sparkling sunlight sparkles overhead." how poetic

As I said, the plants themselves are uglier than a Pilea 'Purple Waffle.' But they are tough--you could practically drop a nuclear weapon on one and it would just re-sprout from its roots.

Ohmygod :eek:
I decided to sow some more M. pudica seeds.  Using roughly the same mix I had before, I popped the tray in the oven to keep it warm.  In 2 days they sprouted!  I've been waiting over 5 weeks for my first batch to sprout.  So it seems warmth is the secret formula, at least it was a secret to me

The plants won't stop growing til the fat lady sings and lets hope that'll be for a long time.
