On a personal note, it’s good that I picked this topic because it led to me noticing that the pineapple stem I keep in an applesauce jar full of water was, in fact, in an applesauce jar completely devoid of water due to long neglect. The stem is still alive, the jar is refilled.
But the prompt is plants in general, flowers, weeds, grass, maize, shrubs, redwoods, and so forth. Any plant or plant related matter that you wish to talk about.
[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]
