Dinosaur Plant


Hello, I am the amazing Dinosaur Plant! I am one of the longest-living plants in the world! My ancestors were around to see the first dinosaurs emerge. At that time, we grew to over 120 feet, much taller than even a 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 over 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!


Give me some water and I will spring to life in less than 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!
