#1 triffid

Post by ed »

does anybody know what the name of this plant is. I thought it was a kalanchoe but I can't find a description of a kalanchoe that is 2' tall and won't flower. Sebastian bought it from the school bazaar about 3 years ago when it was 2" tall and for 6 months it didn't grow 1mm and I thought it was plastic...

not the aggressive type though, I should say .... um, some smart phones have a 'thing' recognition button in their suite of options for the camera. I was once shown this and the phone recognised the pukka plant we were looking at.

'ave a go!?

Kaye suggests a kalanchoe plant
Little known fact, coherent thought can destructively interfere with itself leaving no thought at all, that’s why I prefer incoherent thought.

The sort of thing they advertise on afternoon TV, so I'm told.

Seems mentioning "leaking wee" regarding women is OK these days, but verboten regarding men.
