Grow, plant, grow!

2 weeks ago, Ivan, who just came back from a trip to Bangkok (aaaand Singapore, lucky b******:), gave me this as a souvenir. A shot glass, some seeds and a pill. ERM...

"It is a plant!"
"Oh really? Will it look like wheatgrass?"
"I think so"
"No, actually it is quite ugly..."
"How do you know?"
"He gave me one earlier and I planted mine already"
"Oh, what does it look like then?"
"Dunno.. some leaves."


First Step:

Put the pill into the shot glass with some clean water.

















Second Step:

Watch it grow into nutritious jelly (Don't eat it)

*It took about 5 minutes to expand into this but Hajar's one took 4 hours because she didn't remove the contents from the capsules... hehe! We just realized.












Third Step:

Place the seeds on top of the nutritious jelly. Voila, your plant is on its way to life!

















Two days later:

"Is that a sprout? It is! Take photo!!!"

*Of course the roots came first but who cares, right?







"Two sprouts! Yay!"














A few days later:

"Whoa... I wonder how tall you guys are going to be."










"Come on! Achieving Forest Status soon!"














A few days later:

Erm, this is about as tall as they get. (Notice the champion sprout, the tallest one)
















In fact, a few days later, I realized that the plant was in a Decline Stage. So I discussed with my fellow recipient of this cute plant thing on msn.

Yvonne: I'm blogging about my little plant... hehe!
Hajar: Ohhh..
Yvonne: It is at a stage where it is going to die already...
Hajar: Haih, my plant mati already.
Yvonne: Hahahahha! Why ya?
Hajar: Wakakaka
Yvonne: They just grow for a while and then die. Are we supposed to eat them?
Hajar: Noooo... please don't!


Anyways, I saw some spores growing on the jelly and I immediately decided to say sorry to the plants and removed it from my room. Now they are struggling for a few more days of survival in front of the tv. I wish you all the best, little plants in the shot glass! :D
