It's just a common Variegated Philodendron Vine... *Smirks*
Oh it's much older than 30 years... In some cultures I think this vine would be considered Sentient (Eastern Culture believes that an item forgotten for 100yrs becomes a youkai *Ghost* and or Sentient) This vine has been forgotten and unloved for so long just thrown from room to room like a pillow. So From it's Phoenix like death (Was last outside in the freezing December cold just days before I got Drax) with just a few stems... I brought it in and trimmed it up. So now moved yet again to a new home. It shall always be loved.
*About to show his creepy love of anything botanical*
I'd write more actually but I feel as if this alone alienates me from the rest of you hahahahahahaha what? I love plants? I even have a Bhut Jolokia fruiting in my care as well... FRUITING IN DECEMBER *Bows* To sort of prove how hot this thing is.... http://www.gregbocquet.com/graphics/scoville.html
A scale of ... heat of sorts. It's so hot you can't even taste the flavor.
Once again... how hot? This hot... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QYdwC47QH0&feature=fvw
A video of two idiots eating two Fresh ones... which is NOT SMART! ... but ENTERTAINING :D
I plan on making Chili with these things... (Loves HOT food).
Don't worry I've eaten them myself before... I wouldn't recommend it... it hurts... Imagine swallowing broken glass... HOT broken glass. It hurts to breath, and burns for 20mins even with milk. Keep in mind thats if you eat it whole... in small amounts... in food it can add wonderful flavor and tang!
OK! Sorry went on a TANGENT there! hahahaha Um... oh yeah the plant is fine that submerged vine is actually curving up to get out of the water... and bending to get out as well... (Told ya... it's probably Sentient now *Makes Ghost Noises*).
DRAX tonight... his eye looks SLIGHTLY better... added about 2tsp of AQ Salt and let the filter run for abit to mix the water... until I manage to cut the power of that thing... I only turn it on for about an hour a day to get the water moving...
I know I should do a water change but... his water looks so clean and so does the tank... and he seems so happy and relaxed. How would you like to finally settle down at the new house then have someone say ya gotta leave for a few hours with no explanation. Hahaha Besides... I need more Dechlorinate. Which I'll get today... along with perhaps a Java Fern, a Gravel vac and heck... maybe a few Cories or Tetras... *Glares at everyone* Cories or Tetra's thats what I've decided... 5 of one or the other... *As if looking at a brochure* Or maybe Mollies... *Facepalms* Ok the Jury is still out on that one...
