Does anyone have one of these? I was clipping coupons (I''m obsessed with it!) and saw one of those cheesy mail order forms for one. It actually looks like a good idea. I looked it up and apparently this plant can go 100 years without water. Once you water it, it will unfold and turn green again. I believe it is a fern. Anyway, I was just seeing if anyone had any experience with one. I lost my green thumb a while back and am thinking this might be the perfect house plant for me!

Oob,

Not sure I''ve ever heard of one of these, but gosh, if you can forget to water it for a lifetime and it still lives, I need one of those!

It''s kind of a parasite. It grows on other plants and feeds off of them.

It can go for long periods without water. It protects itself by curling up and only feeding its stem.

I don''t feel like it''s a plant because you don''t pot it!
