@ashfurrow Hahaha, this is what happens when MS releases ancient 16-bit assembler under MIT license. When do we get Win3 or Win95? 🤣

@trickster heck, I remember when web pages would fit on 3 floppies

@ashfurrow I remember when a webpage would take les kb than classics of russian literature.

@ashfurrow depends on your definition of order. Start at the upper-right, go counter-clock wise. All fine. Interesting plant!

@ashfurrow Hi, with "rehydrating itself", you mean that you gave it no water yourself, but it rather took air moisture in ?

@marseye when water gets scarce, it dehydrates itself and curls inward to protect itself until water comes back, and then it repeats!

@ashfurrow That, I had understood.

Ok, so you watered it, no air moisture involved.

Not sure if" it dehydrates itself" instead of "tolerates natural dehydration".

Most seeds themselves have their own triggers... Nature is such a subtle and admirable living machinery !

@marseye right, I guess I meant that without seeding, it goes between an active/wet and inactive/dry cycle in response to its environment. It can survive a long, long time dried out. It’s also called a resurrection fern. When dried out, as in one of the photos, it looks kind of like an egg 🦖

@ashfurrow another three-body fan here. And now I want that plant too

@ashfurrow Someone should paint a dollar bill on the ground that left person just spotted!

@ashfurrow Jericho Rose or Anastatica or Anastatica. Got one since like forever saved at home and yep, no mather how many time last dry, it always open up with water.

@ashfurrow DO NOT make a wish on it. They’re like monkey paws.
