I used up all of our mulch and all our spare pots to move a small patch of citrus that had come up unexpectedly after about 4 months. I put a ton of citrus seeds in a small area but they hadn't sprouted for such a long time that I expected them all to be duds. The area was only about 20x30cm and I didn't even get all of them before I ran out of pots. Many of those pots are tofu and yogurt containers with holes cut in the bottom.

approximately every time I handle seeds I freak out with awe at this whole phenomenon of everyday self replicating technology

@substack

There are 71 pots in that first photo, each with a citrus sprout. Forgot to mention.

That's a nice start, @stubsack! #badpuns

How about weeds! Madeira Vine is my favourite. Every node of the vine makes a tuber. Touch it and the tubers start dropping off. Cut it and the tubers drop off. Every tuber grows by itself (even on cement).

Not that I know of. Just appreciating how they replicate :smiley:
