    That's a good way to do a seed swap~ or a community garden type thing if more folks I knew around me was interested in something like that I'd do so. Unfortunately haven't been able to find any like minded folks in the immediate area, so extra seed goes via the mail to penpals or the library...

    @Lazy Gardener I loved/love science! It can be so fascinating!! Oddly enough I didn't always do so well there either despite the enjoyment of it (most the time), I can't put all the blame on the teachers though, I do have diagnosed ADHD and ADD since adolescentsy so i already had a stroke...

    @frustratedearthmother I dont like math classes, in honesty they are some of my worst school memories... and mho for the reason that is, is because there was never a teacher who could help it click in a way i could understand/many didn't even bother trying. the collage does a placement test...

    When I pulled it out of the original pot the roots were packed pretty hard, so I'm startin to think that might be what the issue is possibly (still pretty new to all sorts of growing) I snipped off a few lil bits and gonna try to get new cuttings going cause of the questionable status of the plant

    @sumi That was a pretty good read! I dont know how old the plant Is entirely, i know at least 5ish months that I've seen it around (before it wound up in the trash :( ) and am quite intrigued it only blooms at night! That will make for a quite interesting experience if I ever see flowers on it~
