Pine Cone is opening!

Hello all,

Last week, I have bought a pine cone in a supermarket. It said on the label, that it is a great decoration for the christmas holiday and if you want to make it open, then put it on the heater. It will sound childish, but I have never done, seen or had something like this before, so I have decided to buy it (anyway it was 1€). I was really curious to see the progress. The first couple of days nothing happened.. I started to think “nature went wrong”, but I was really surprised when couple of days ago it starts to crack and “shooting” seeds out of it. The area, around my heater looked like a battlefield. pieces of the cone and seeds were around it.

For me the seeds were the most interesting part. It looked like it is covered in charcoal. When I took them in my hands it left a black mark. I will definitely make some more research about it and get the bottom of this “mystery” 🙂

Before I end this blog post, I just want to mention that the upcoming days, I will upload an interview with a carnivorous plant expert. I think it will be very interesting and worthy to read, not to mention the picture are looking great! So see you soon!
