On The Subject Of Discoveries...
Back in the early days of this blog, I posted about my favorite plant, the Amorphophallus titanum, a plant which, based on its description, seems most unlikely to be real. But it is.
My point is, new species of plants are being discovered every day. Some big plants. I'm talking about previously unknown species in the wild, not crossbreeds or manmade hybrids.
To date, we have yet to discover a plant that can see, hear, or smell us coming. A plant that can run and hide from us, or lay low in woods waiting for us to pass.
Animals can do this!
