Amazon! This was my first time ordering any plant online and was super paranoid about purchasing from a third party Amazon seller but everything about it went fantastically. Nicely packaged, good variety (as you can see), and it came with some little decorative ladybugs and a few extra seedlings, a handwritten note, and some care instructions.

u/enwongeegeefor · 33 pointsr/UnethicalLifeProTips

$1250 worth of seeds.....that shit would make the national news for one of the gag segments

u/crispyscone · 23 pointsr/todayilearned

You are correct. I grew purple carrots, they are purple on the outside and orange on the inside. Taste the same as regular carrots.

exhibit c

I have no experience with the fully purple carrots, but I came across this in my google image search:

fully purple carrot 1

fully purple carrot 2

I wonder where I can get seeds for those?

u/chadpatrick · 15 pointsr/CasualConversation

You can get them. They are just not produced in volumes that make them a viable crop. Doing so greatly increases the risk of the Panama Disease wiping them out.

u/koolaidface · 15 pointsr/TheWayWeWere

They still exist, I know that much. You can buy plants on Amazon.

u/xEleanorxRigbyx · 14 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Oh my god YES.

u/anaolinskywalker · 14 pointsr/mycology

Lol! Thank you for assuming I have any idea of what I am doing. I got a little brick that you just water. This is my second attempt after a very frustrating first one a few months ago. The one in the picture was purchased from Amazon, here is the listing (sorry I don't know how to link better):

They have grown as big as you can see in the picture in about 10 days. They are now growing so fast that there's a huge difference from night to morning!

u/Somnif · 12 pointsr/gifs

Unfortunately shiitakes are a bit trickier. They grow best on hardwood logs (oak or the like) in fairly cool temperatures and quite a long time. With work they can grow on "fake logs" but I wouldn't recommend them to a first time grower. It takes a bit of experience juggling temperature, humidity, and air exchange that is best done with another species.

Oysters, on the other hand, will grow on damn near anything. I've seen grows done on phone books, money, even a stuffed bra once. Only thing to watch out for is spore drop. Oysters put out ridiculous amounts of spores and if you are the least bit allergic (or even might be) you do NOT want to attempt growing in your home.

If you just want to experience the fruiting part of the process, you can buy little "grow your own mushroom" kits many places these days (My local grocery store carries them sometimes) for about 20$. This is a block of already-colonized substrate that you just fruit. Quick and simple, its a good way to get your toes wet with minimal expenditure.

Right then, on to the links! Best place online to find mycological information is . Its focus is largely on illegal mushrooms but they have a large and well curated gourmet/medicinal section as well.

The north american mycological association also has a website with a fairly well written step by step guide through growing oysters.

We also have a few fungus friendly subreddits here too!

And to round things out, an imgur walk through that would end up with a bucket very like the one in the video up above. This fellow doesn't pasteurize his substrate (risky, but thats his choice) but beyond that the process is more or less the same.

I can post more/better links when I get home. This work laptop has the horsepower of an anemic wood frog so its a little frustrating pulling things up.

u/unwelcomepatting · 9 pointsr/Futurology of course you can buy them on Amazon... you can buy anything on Amazon

u/XxCxHxAxDxX · 8 pointsr/IllegalLifeProTips

Look up "hacking neighbor's bluetooth speaker".. play porn at full volume once you're in.

Or.. drop a giant bag of dandelion spores in her garden and slowly watch them takeover. (

u/megankmartin · 7 pointsr/houseplants

I'm going to offer a slightly different suggestion because I know how much kids like to interact with their projects. "Interacting" with plants often means watering...and thus possible death, and disappointment. I also know that many kids tend to lose interest in things that aren't "doing" anything, like slow-growing plants.

So... how about growing a mushroom kit, or herbs of any kind from seed? There's a lot of daily, visual gratification from growth and change. In the case of a mushroom kit, you actually get to water them quite often because they need it. It's so satisfying. Our family had a great time with that earlier this year.

For a true houseplant, though, I second the recommendations for ZZ and pothos. Pothos grow faster, at least.

u/KetInducedPsychosis · 6 pointsr/mycology

Ya man. I’ve been growing for 10+ years, but since I’m an adult now I wanted to do some non-psychedelics. Instead of going the whole route of inoculating jars and making a fruiting chamber and stuff, I just went into amazon and bought a few grow kits. Depending on the type of fungi you wanna make they grow on different substrates (ie saw dust for shiitake cuz they grow on wood, or wheat, whatever). Anyways, when you order you get a bag of substrate completely colonized by the fungi mycelium. My shiitake log all I had to do was soak it in water overnight then stick it in the fridge for 24hours to start the fruiting process. After that I placed it on a plate in a cold spot in my house (needs to be under 75 degrees Fahrenheit to not grow mold) and covered it with this little plastic bag with holes it in to keep humidity in. It came with a little spray bottle and you just spray it a few times a day. I just did it in the morning, lunch break, after work, and maybe before I go to bed. Once they started pinning you water it as often as your able. In about 5 days they were all fully grown and I plucked em. Now I let the log dry out for a few days, then I dunk it again in water overnight and put it in the fridge then BAM another flush. Supposedly can get up to a pound over 3 months from just one.

The oysters are a little different. Just cutt an X in the bag and place it near a window and spray it as often as you can. Once I saw them grow they were ready in 3 days. Literally growing an inch or more a day.

Here’s the ones I bought. Keep in mind when your more experienced you can use their substrate that’s colonized to do a bulk grow and can harvest TONS at once.

Okay I kinda cheated, I used this kit from amazon that had some good reviews:

First step in what will hopefully be a long career of mushroom growing :)

It hasn't fruited yet... i need to do more research on how long it takes. It was planted as a sapling.

Ironically, I grew it only because someone said it was extinct and I found it... just the one.

I tried to germinate unroasted coffee beans a handful of times before just giving in and buying a few small plants on Amazon.

I've had them about a year now and they're still doing well.

u/jbisinla · 2 pointsr/history

> I imagine many of those seeds and plants are lost to time though.

You'd be surprised.

You can buy corn seeds, or if you want to be really hardcore, you can grow its ancestor, teosinte, and seeds are readily available.

Modern bananas are all pretty much clones of the Dwarf Cavendish variety, but the previous commercial version, which nearly went extinct back in the '50s, the Gros Michel, can be bought on Amazon., or if you want to be super hardcore, the musa acuminata ssp. errans, which was an ancestor further back, is still grown, but harder to track down seeds for.

Obviously, all sorts of species have been lost over time, but it's always amazing to see what's still out there, like the mammoth squash grown by the Miami Indians of Indiana for 5,000 years or so.

Youtube has all kinds of cool videos if you're into this stuff.

u/Loganshaw9 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

you have to use ripe cherries to plant from seeds so you will not be able to do this yet you will need to find coffee plants

this is where you can get one that is already started

u/bullionbud · 2 pointsr/BubbleHash

It's cheaper on and comes with the work bag

Also don't lift it by the handle on the back when it's full (use the grips on the sides)

Actually the Gros Michel variety still exists in the wild in areas of Thailand, in fact you can buy a whole plant from Amazon.

u/Gullex · 2 pointsr/MushroomGrowers

You can spend $20 on one of these pre-made mushroom "farms", or you could spend ~$100-$300 on a four tier greenhouse, humidifier, controller, fan, timer, pressure cooker, substrates, still air box or glove box, grow bags, etc.

Or you could spend many thousands on a grow room, laminar flow hood, and all the fanciest supplies. It's up to you. You can really invest as much time and money as you want. You decide your own level of involvement. ;)

Temperature for growing depends on the mushroom but in general is around 70F-ish. Some like cooler temps, some warmer.

I will assume it's a crap light only because they don't offer any information as to output and what not. These blurple lights usually have high blue spectrum and crap red spectrum.

It seems like budget is something that is important to you, did you look at either of these lights? <-- the lights are 3000k Lumen, which is exemplary for flowering and great for vegging. However, it too does not give us any info on efficiency and output. But right off the bat the 3000k will outperform the UFO blurple.

1.) Something that is grey. This might be a stretch, the cover art is grey!

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. This version of the Bell Jar has rain on the cover.

3.) Something food related that is unusual. If coffee counts as food, then this TARDIS coffee mug is unusual!

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) This Kindle is for my grandmother, I am actually saving for it now! I have my own.

5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! EVERYONE EVER SHOULD READ THE WICKED SERIES. Seriously, Gregory Maguire is probably the most talented author I've ever read, and I've read a lot!

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! EDITED: Not on my WL This dirty and weird sounding Kindle book is free!

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) I want to get this book for my thesis mentor, she loves cats!

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. I would be the belle of the ball in these. So pretty.

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? EDITED: Not on my WL but this is a freaking powerful movie that every "rebellious" teenager should watch. Life changing.

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. I would stab them repeatedly. And also draw art for them so they regain humanity, thusly ending the zombie apocalypse.

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. This book was actually written by my thesis mentor, the one I want to get the cat book for haha, and it would help me finish my thesis which would make me a real grown up!

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. Don't gots none. EDITED: Not on my WL but extra pesky add on item because they get EVERYWHERE even once you've managed to get them home!

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? Already used the paperwhite for my grandma.

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. EDITED: Not on my WL but this is big!

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. Pretty earrings.

16.) Something that smells wonderful. Plants usually smell nice.


18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school. Another book for my thesis reading list.

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. I am simultaneously obsessed with my iphone and Harry Potter.

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. Freaking color changing coffee cups that are Marauder's Map themed! They change patterns with temperatures! IT'S LIKE REAL MAGIC MEISHKA!

This PR class is nuts.

My favorite class was my college public speaking class. It wasn't like a normal public speaking class where you just gave speeches though. Everyone sat in a circle, and it was like a discussion. But there was rules:

We couldn't talk about anything outside of the class.

We could only speak for ourselves.

We had to give examples of specific interactions for everything.

No theories, no hypotheticals. No closed questions.

And we had to address a specific person in class every time we talked.

It was awesome. The first few classes were awkward... but then people started understanding why the rules existed. It's really hard to explain but people got to know each other in a new way, instead of asking the same old questions. It was interesting and unique, and I wish more classes were like it, my professor was awesome.

So did you buy this?:

There are some seeds you can still start right now, like all the lettuces or the radishes.

I just googled for a vegetable sowing calender which fits you climate zone, this one should be perfect since you say you're living in Zone 8a: North Carolina:

So there are many vegetables you can still plant directly outside into your beds.

The link to your photo is not working.

It is hard to answer most of your questions without that link.

But a few I can answer.

As far as herbs go. You can do a lot of these in doors on a window. Only grow herbs that you are going to use, mint is really easy, so is basil, so are chives and garlic.

I just bought these seeds for my garden for this coming fall, winter, and spring 2017.

I have never used this company before but they have good reviews. If you plan on going organic I would get some neem oil right off the bat as it is a great natural defense for your plants and it is better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

What kind of fruit are you thinking? Strawberries?

5w LEDs, compared to 3, and they are cheaper than when I bought them at 69 bucks. I think they draw actual 130watts, I just added 2 CFLs to pick up any missing overlap, but so far they are looking good!

Play this song while reading (follow with any other Empire of the Sun song when it ends)

It was a dark and stormy night; the darkness was so consuming, there must have been magic involved. The days had been growing longer and the nights warmer for awhile now, and the time of faeries was nearing. Amsie hadn't been beyond the great old oak glade since the eve of last summer. Could she even be sure the magic had been born yet? She trudged onward through the darkness, the brilliant beam of her headlamp the only thing illuminating the barely-there path through the forest. It was cool tonight, but an indescribable warmth Amsie could only really say was an alive sense of self led her through the deep night.

And then, just ahead, she could see the trees parting. Was she too soon? Was summertime magic alive yet in the forest? As she stepped forward, she was answered nearly immediately as the forest lit up in enchanted moonlight, shimmery silver kissing the forest, now transformed and opening itself into a mystical clearing. "The faeries have been busy already," Amsie thought to herself. Before her, laid out in moonlight, was this year's magic faerie garden. Her eye was drawn immediately to a bush of what she thought were tomatoes, but were too many colors- too beautiful to be real. Regular red tomatoes had their place, but the faeries had somehow infused these ones with the rainbow- would they taste any different? She had to know, but she knew the penalty for taking from the fae. She pocketed her hands and let her eyes do the eating. She tore her eyes from the vivid "tomatoes," if you could call them that, and inspected another strange magical plant.

It looked like a faerie-sized watermelon, but the plant was COVERED in them. A sweet-faced fae flitted nearby, her ice-blue wings glinting in the moonlight, and Amsie called to her. "What are these?" she asked the sprite, who flew over, perching on Amsie's shoulder. "Well, those are cucamelons of course! They were gifted to us by Quetzalcoatl- he loves the colors we grow here in The Garden - as resplendent as he, he says! So he gave us melons that would make us feel large and special too!" With a smile, she whisked off in an azure blur. Amsie was satisfied with the answer, they were like tiny watermelons afterall! "How kind of Quetzalcoatl to share the seed", she thought, looking around the verdant glen.

A hummingbird chirped at her, flying in low circles near her face. He continued to pester her, flying in the direction of a cluster of fae creatures. She sighed and followed the pesky little guy to the gathering. They were pulling some sort of great ferns from the earth, their tops light and bouncy, fluttering with each breath and concerted effort to pull it from the ground. Amsie approached, hoping to get a better look at these funny plants when a faun approached her, several fern-somethings clutched in a bouquet, another hanging from his mouth. He was chewing on the root end and Amsie thought it looked a bit like a carrot- but the colors were all- off. She accepted the carrot bouquet from his outstretched arm, and he bounded off to flirt with the nyads. Indeed it was a carrot, as she turned it over in her hands she could see is careful rings, but it was so dark- as if it had soaked up the night itself. As she admired the "carrot" bunch, another friendly faerie flew over, munching on a smaller chunk of carrot she must have cut for herself. Amsie could see that at its heart, the carrots were golden orange, and so warm. The deep darkness of their exterior was illuminated by the contrasting core. "Thems there are purple dragon carrots, did you know that? Big 'ol nasty dragon purred like a kitten when we fed him some rainbow 'maters last year and enchanted these up for us! Try one!" He winked at her before zooming off to try and pull out more carrots, seeped in not only the magical darkness, but apparently dragon magic. Amsie looked at the carrot and shrugged, it had been offered, so the penalty mustn't apply. It was worth the risk to try this mysterious root. She broke off the long scraggly bit at the end and took one crunchy bite. It was unreal- the sweetness, the deep earthiness, like Mother Earth herself had let her soul seep in as she nurtured their growth.

And then it happened. Amsie flashed her eyes open- when had she even closed them? No longer in the forest in her gear, but in bed in her night shirt- she blinked sand from her eyes. Oh no. For one bite she'd paid a heavy price. She knew it hasn't been a dream. She knew it was real. It had to be. She could just almost taste the sweet darkness, feel the smooth leaves on the cucamelons, feel the moonlight filtering through the diffuse magic in the air. But she knew better than to eat the faerie food. If only she could have and hold just a little bit of that magic, just for a moment hold the memory of summer magic.

I hope you liked my magical story! Let's both experience this magic together, but for real! Rainbow tomatoes, faerie cucamelons, and dragon carrots are all on my list and altogether are still around $5! Let's grow our own summer faerie garden! All 3 of these can be grown in containers on a porch if a magical glade isn't in your reality right now!

Thank you! ♡

Get your dad the nice wallet, and fill it with gift cards and/or cash and a picture of yourself and your sister! It's fun to open more presents, so a few small thoughtful gifts in addition would be great. I'd probably just go to the store and go by how the wallet feels in picking one out?

Your sister sounds like the hardest one to buy a gift for. Maybe she'd like an acer chromebook
Or a coffee bean plant

I'd suggest going in together with your sister on the gifts for your parents if possible. So it seems like it's not a competition to get them the better gift and your parents will be proud of you guys that you are able to get them something so nice.

I received it as a gift, but I think this is it

You can get baobabs, ghost peppers, stevia, tobacco, and coffee from Amazon.

You can also go to /r/seedswap/ to see what people have there.

Probably, anywhere bananas grow. You need to get a keiki or baby plant. Amazon has sold the plant:, you can try a good nursery.
