@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 your plant posting never ceases to make me happy

@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 You know, I worked for a place that had just such a tool because we needed to set a jam nut to a "very specific" torque. I questioned the added length and was assured is was calculated for despite using the torque spec that is printed on the part.
