Im not sure @linfoster @janric i would say as big as an orange. You can put them altogether in a bowl if you wish, i only got these as i was intrigued to see what they did and wether they did what it said, experiment succesful i think ☺️

Wow, that's incredible , I can't pretend to understand exactly how it does that but it's very well adapted to its environment in the wild. Does it still have more to go, and then what do you do with it then? 🤓📝

@richard.spicer.7906, it can take upto 3 days to fully turn green, as long as it has water it will stay green and should produce seeds, when its starved of water, it will curl up, dry out to the begining then keep it as long as you want, then start the whole process again, they can stay dried up apparently for 50 years! Dont think the specimens i got are that great, as when i googled it, the videos on there were amazing. Just a little thing i found interesting and gave it a go ☺️
