Good morning, I got a dino plant last night and it’s gorgeous! I took photos of it rehydrating itself, like the Trisolarans!

@ashfurrow depends on your definition of order. Start at the upper-right, go counter-clock wise. All fine. Interesting plant!
@marseye when water gets scarce, it dehydrates itself and curls inward to protect itself until water comes back, and then it repeats!
@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
@mdszy awesome! I will keep it up, then!
@ashfurrow eeeeeeee so nifty!

@ashfurrow Some are more important than others.
@ashfurrow best trick:
smoke too little, don't get hammered.
@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.
