5. Beautiful how species have evolved traits

In a way it's saying I reproduce in this way because it has proven to work and current natural selection processes favor my way of doing things. True, I may not reproduce as fast as you do, but given where I live and the conditions I've been exposed to for millennia, I'd beat you in the long term if you had the same resources and were presented with the same circumstances I was given.

Just beautiful. I saw one that flowered when I was a child and thought, what a stupid plant.

I wonder if its seeds are sterile for living indoors all of it's life. Probably.
