What would happen if these plants keep on growing and eating... I cannot imagine if anyone would to purposely keep feeding the plant... ??? ;-)

Ew, eww. I don't know if I even want to read this story. I guess if you go hiking with your family there, you hang onto your baby... Sorry, not in the best of taste, but really!

Если врач знает название вашей болезни, это еще не значит, что он знает что это такое. Никогда не приписывай человеческой зловредности того, что можно объяснить обыкновенной глупостью. Человек может долго жить на деньги которые он ждет. Реальность это иллюзия вызываемая отсутствием алкоголя. Женщины едят за разговорами, мужчины едят заедой.

If the plants drown rats, then they can't be all bad:) Seriously though, that was an extremely interesting read. And pink ferns and blue mushrooms????

Finally got my computer fixed so that I can leave comments here.

Very scary! Hope they don't somehow get transported around the world.
