    i know of kind of a rare plant - the only place it's found is a handful of places in my home state, and nowhere else. it's called Fasset's locoweed.

    One of my D. capensis plants has slightly longer tentacles than the others. Therefore, it is a new species. That makes it the rarest species of plant in the world, since there's only one.

    Titanum, spectacular, but not the rare-EST. Want one when I have goood size green house or two.

    Swords I really want one of those crazy Welwitschia mirabilis. A plant that has only two leaves that continuously grow for nearly a century! They are a truly bizarre freak of nature. I can't help but love them!
    Good growing, Jack

    That would really suck if you accidentally ripped a leaf and had to deal with it for the next 100 years...
