Steve_D wrote:That is really wild, Matt, seeing what looks like a flower bud forming from that mass of tissue. Did you ever see John Carpenter's version remake of "The Thing"? (Great movie by the way, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084787/) It reminds me of that: a mass of cells that can turn into almost anything, including a lot of half-this, half-something-else chimeras.I haven't seen the movie (I'll have to pick it up sometime), but it's true that it's really wild to see this crazy mass of tissue. It has everything from flower stalks to petals to leaves and traps all growing out of the bud. Weird!

The first version was a little larger, so I toned this one down; I don't want to appear too pushy or ostentatious or whatever.) --SteveInitially it appeared a little large to me, but now it's looking better to me. It's a little tall so that it stretches the page a bit so that you have to scroll down a bit on the longer threads, but it's definitely not over the top.
