Strangler Figs and Other Crap Houseplants

- Yikes, I feel like a dung beetle bringing this home from the nursery.

- I guess because it’s a ball of dung, huh? Which did you buy? Mine is elephant feces with bush mango seeds in it. It feels like it’s warming up in the plastic already.

- I had a hard time choosing. They also had elephant dung with northern ilala palm and crap from giraffes, buffalo, kudu, baboons, birds and fruit bats. I ended up purchasing chimpanzee-processed strangler figs.

- It says here the plant seeds pass through their digestive tracts unharmed ready to germinate in the fertile feces. This is soo exciting!

- Yeah, and it also says that the potted poo should stand out on a patio, balcony or in an open window the first few weeks. No shit.

       Strange thing is, that this is what mostly happens at the end of the food chain.

"But, it's good shit."

       Why just houseplants? Mr Hankey tomatoes would be delightful!

       Would this work with things like onions? Imagine some animal trying to swallow that down.   

       Will the animals be harmed in the process of processing by being forced to eat too much?

       [froglet] This is not a question of force-feeding but of gathering and conserving (to slow germination) natural dung from fruit-consuming exotic animals.
