All things western and more.
No, I didn't know it! Happy Birthday to CJ! Hugs, Valerie
That Darwin was always experimenting wasn't he?
Happy Birthday to CJ.I didn't know that - and do worry that sometimes our scientists conduct some fairly cruel experiements.
They do indeed. 'We kill the ones we love.' He supposed loved these plants.
That's a new one on me. Happy birthday week, CJ. Hope you're having fun at the retreat.
Who'd a thought.
Happy Birthday, CJ! I have tried and tried to raise Venus Flytraps. I never had any luck.
I've always wanted a Venus Flytrap but never had one. It's just as well, it would probably try to eat my cats;)
Hi Sandra - Darwin was an amazing man ... experimenting in so many natural things. Venus Flytraps are fun aren't they. Happy Birthday to CJ ... cheers to all - Hilary
He was amazing and they are fun:)Cheers,
You learn something new every day Sandra. Also Happy Birthday to CJ.Yvonne.
We do indeed, Yvonne. Have a good one.
I only know about Venus Flytraps from Little Shop of Horrors. 😄 Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Thanks for the digi card, Sandra. It’s purrrrrfect especially the Ink kitty
Hope your birthday is as purrfect as you, CJ:)Enjoy it.
Neat fact! Happy Birthday to CJ!
Glad you liked it, Christine.
Again, I did not know. Happy birthday to CJ.
Who'd a thought. Huh?
I didn't know that he did that. Interesting. And that was nice of you to make a Birthday card for CJ.
Thanks, Anne. Send me your bday and I'll put you on the list:)
That's a long time
I did not know this either.....and yes, a MOST happy birthday to you CJ ☺☺♥♥
Who'd a thought, huh?
I've never heard of anyone anesthetizing a plant. Perhaps he worried that since Venus flytraps can move a little, they might be able to feel too, like animals? Or maybe he was just testing whether they could still move when anesthetized?A lot of plants have surprisingly long lifespans. Most people have bushes or shrubs near where they live that have been around for decades. Some trees live thousands of years.

Sandra CoxAugust 1, 2019 at 7:47 PMIt did sound like he thought they could feel didn't it? Considering their makeup I wouldn't be surprised. Plants can have long lifespans for sure. We had some at work that were between 15 and 19 years old.
Sure never knew that.
Surprised me too:)
Anesthetizing? Compassionate man.
Happy belated birthday to CJ! Well, back then they had no clue about being good to plants and animals.
Unfortunately they didn't, did they, Birgit?
No, I didn't know that.Happy Birthday Wishes to CJAll the best Jan
