    If you like a challenge with humidity try S. dulcificum, the miracle fruit plant. Look it up and you'll see it fits "unusual" extraordinarily well. I have a larger plant and a few seedlings and as long as you keep the seedlings in high humidity for a while you can then wean them to an easier to attain humidity. And when you get fruit, that's totally worth it.

    Aroids! Big and stinky ones are awesome, but plenty of others that look weird.

    Great suggestions, guys. Keep 'em coming.

    I'll probably definetly do the mimosa plants. I just don't want 15 of them. 10 seeds should suit me fine- 2 per cup and I can give some plants away. That leaves 10 more cups to fill...

    Anyone ever try banana trees? Those miniature ones are fascinating to me. They even produce tiny banans you can eat.

    Also a possibility is a "telegraph plant", another plant capable of movement. I think it might trip me out to see my plant moving around in the windowsill though .

    How about any suggestions on succulents? "Living stones" look pretty cool. Don't know how they do from seed though.

    I would also be into anything that could be a good bonsai plant. I'm growing two black pines in the same dish right now and they're doing great. I've been thinking bald cypress look pretty cool and would make a unique bonsai. They would also like the same types of waterlogged conditions as my CP's.

    Thanks to rattler for introducing me to a new plant. Pretty cool- I'll look into them.

    And Larry- I know what you're thinking... Voodoo Lily! I don't think my girlfriend would appreciate a huge flower in the middle of the apartment that stinks enough to knock a buzzard off a $%#* wagon.

    Just kidding
