    Interesting Non-CP plants I can ask for for Christmas?

    So after my parents asked me what I want for Christmas today, I got to thinking that I might like to order some seeds for some interesting plants!
    So I'm just looking for some ideas of what is out there worth considering!
    First, I like edible things, so things int the dragon fruit/miracle fruit/ghost pepper vein are right up my alley.
    Second, interesting plants like mimosa pudica are cool too!
    I'm in St. Louis, so either need to be able to survive outside most of the year here, or can fit reasonably inside!
    Thanks for the suggestions!

    You can get ghost pepper seeds if you like things that are insanely hot.. They are killer though

    Miracle fruit cant take temps below 50 so be careful with that. And its a super slow grower.

    If you go with dragonfruit buy cuttings not seeds. Cuttings are cheap and very easy to root. The lightest frost will kill a dragonfruit though so keep that in mind too.

    I really love Hoyas. They have very interesting, colorful flowers and a wide variety of leaf shapes. However, you could only grow them outdoors in warmer weather. There are some that stay fairly compact, so it may not be too much trouble to keep indoors in winter. I'm growing a H. lacunosa "sno caps" that is pretty compact and has been blooming for months.

    I don't know if you'd consider these interesting, but I think that Lithops are pretty cool. I'm trying to get a few seeds to germinate as we speak. I'd also recommend the Mimosa, although I'm not sure if you have it or not. It grows very fast, and is invasive in most places, so take that into consideration.
