I love this!! The kids love to watch it grow! Great American Toy Test 2005
|Item # DP-0012
Hello, I am the wild and crazy dinosaur plant. I am one of the longest-living plants in the world! My ancestors looked down to see the first dinosaurs emerge. At that time, we grew to over 120 feet, much taller than even the Tyrannosaurus Rex!
The dinosaurs and my relatives were great friends, although they did eat us occasionally.
When the ice age came, we had to mutate and get really small. We learned how to blow onto dry land and sleep, waiting for water. Usually we drifted around until we stumbled upon a puddle. Then we drank greedily, and went back to sleep until we found our next "fountain!"
My secret is that I am very easy to care for. I donít even need to bury my roots! All I need is a little water and some occasional sleep. With the Brachiosaurus gone, Iíll be perfectly safe in your home!
Place me in my bowl with my New Mexico lava rock. Pour some water on me and I will spring to life within one day! Let me dry out and I will shrink back to my sleeping state. I can sleep for up to fifty years and will still rise when you place me in water!
When you bring me back to life, change my water every day and rinse me for the first few weeks. I will grow in my bowl of water indefinitely, although I do prefer a few naps each year. To put me to bed, just let the water evaporate and donít refill my bowl. Iíll fall asleep in one week and you can wake me in two more!
