Just add water and you could be one bad ass Poseidon. In the comfort of your own bedroom. Or kitchen. Because mom would never allow such messiness stinkin' up your bedroom. Miss Ruler of the Sea.
Only Sea Monkeys never, ever, ever worked. At least not in my house.
We never saw much out of that Sea Monkey Kit.
Except some cloudy water.
|Resurrection Fern during a dry spell.|
This is a Resurrection Fern. An epiphyte--a plant that lives on another plant, like our quintessential southern Spanish moss.
Resurrection Ferns "dry up" during hot, dry periods--like summer. Just add water and...poof! They come back to life. Instant plant.
Another "just add water" plant
The Red Spider Lily that no one seems to have planted growing in my yard and all over town. Also called Surprise Lily or Rain Lily.
This plant grows from a bulb and is triggered by damp, cool conditions. It signals our Fall here.
After a long, hot, pretty dry summer, just adding some cool temperatures and water is always welcome.
