    So you bought this tiny plant from the supermarket. But when it wouldn't bloom, you flushed it down the toilet, right?

    And just this week, this crawled up from the sewer claiming revenge...

    Mwwoooaahhhh...aahhhhh...ahhhhh...ahhhhh...ahhhhhh hhhhhhh!

    I had to go to the dentist , in Camdenton , the store is there , the only one that has something interesting off and on .
    When I lived in Camdenton the floral manager would call when they had orchids going out of bloom , they were nice plants with tags , she had orchids at home and knew how to care for them , I don't go there often , most of the time they have 0 ...new manager . The plant was not expensive , $15.00 .
    Julie the truth is when I was digging in the yard for mud ,it crawled out of the hole and used it's fronds to follow me in the house .
    Beware of the mud !It coates people with spores that are in contact with the mud, that is how it reproduces ... lol

    ...The spores seep through the victim's skin. They quickly reproduce, feeding off the host's organs. Sloooowly they turn...step by step... Until - arrrgh! No victim! Just a person-sized Crocodyllus humanus.

    You haven't mentioned your husband lately, Gin... And I note that Crocodyllus is just about his height...

    I've seen this and always admired them, but haven't ever tried one. They are very interesting, hope it minds its business and doesn't decide to start eating your orchids!
