I bought a “Magic Egg“. It cost about $8 U.S..
Supposedly a plant will break out of the egg, grow, and have a leaf with the message “You can do it!” etched into it.
I don’t know how long this will take, but I have time.
May 1st ’10: the “Egg Pod” is officially dead. It was a quick and painless death. … maybe it wasn’t really really really dead, but I was tired of looking at it.
February 10th ’10: the “Egg Pod” is too big to photograph all at once! Here is one it’s newest offshoots.
November 26th ’09: the “Egg Pod” has now stretched into the next room!
How’d you get up there?!!!!
October 25th ’09: the “Egg Pod” continues to climb and twine and leaf and stuff.
October 13th ’09: the “Egg Pod” is growing like a vine! I think it is a vine. It has attached itself to some hanging basket stuff … that is hanging above it.
September 29th ’09: the Egg Pod continues to grow and amaze! The leaves are huger, or more huger (I never know which one is correcter), than 6 days ago and the thing growing between them (stem thing) is about 18 inches long … and looks threatening!
September 23rd ’09: the Egg Pod‘s leaves are huge!!! I’m not sure what’s going to pop out of that thing growing between them, but I’m excited!
September 18th ’09: the Egg Pod is growing amazingly! Check out those big leafs … or leaves … there are 2 of them anyway. They are like really small elephant ears or something!
September 17th ’09: the Egg Pod is growing like a … whatever it is!
September 14th ’09: It’s growing and stretching it’s alien neck skyward! Unfolding, unfolding, unfolding!
September 10th ’09: It’s alive!!
September ’09: The game is afoot again!!! New Egg Pod!!!
I’m sure he will do much better this time!
THIS IS THE OLD EGG POD’s SAGA: A CAUTIONARY TALE!
Day 1: 30 minutes after starting this new experiment, the egg cracked!
90 minutes later, something popped its head out.
24 hours later it looks like this.
I keep looking behind me because it reminds me of Alien. I think the instructions said, “maintain plant at a temperature between 15-30 Celcius“. This could be hard to do, as my place drops to 5 Celcius at night. Hopefully it adapts like Alien.
He’s a nasty little spud! He’s growing slowly, but it could be a ruse! I can see the lettering “You can do it!” stamped on that pod sticking out of the egg, but I’ll save the photo for another day.
It’s definitely been branded. I don’t think these things grow in the wild or are mutated in a strange laboratory! It hasn’t grown anymore since yesterday, but I think it will do something soon.
It’s football shaped/alien head thingy is cracking. I think a little stem is sticking out, but I can’t zoom in close enough to take a good photo. It is a changling; possibly adapting to Earth’s atmosphere.
Day 6 or 7?:
Nothing new has developed in the last few days. I’ve watered it and am playing the waiting game now.
Day 11 or 12:
The outer layer of the pod is slowly cracking: the plant appears to be growing. Possibly harsh winter temperatures in my living room at night are slowing down it’s growth.
Week 4 (?)
Sorry, I haven’t been keeping this up to date. The magic egg … plant is doing something; but it’s doing it very slowly. It almost looks like it’s rotting! I think the weather conditions at my place aren’t ideal for its health.
I’ll put on updates weekly from now on.
The “New Experiment” has died. I guess it wasn’t able to cope with the extreme temperatures in the living room. I’ll try again when the weather gets warmer.
I guess it “couldn’t do it”.
