Wow. Didn’t even use the old “tomato plant” excuse. Don’t get high on your own supply, dude!

Man, that’s way prettier than the hibisci in my yard, which are of the “small, spready tree” type. (I’ve come to understand that there are like 100 different plants that all fall under the “hibiscus” umbrella, so variety abounds.)
I’d much rather have those nice, compact plants. Perhaps if I just take a few cuttings…?

Mine are like that too, but they attract the hummingbirds.

Only a moron would mistake a hibiscus plant for a pot plant.
And if I had roommates who left my pots dirty, I think I’d wash them myself then lock them in a cabinet so only I could use them.

Since when did hibiscus become ‘irreplaceable’? Where I’m from in Florida, you can’t turn around without walking into a hibiscus or a croton.

Here in MN, only special hybrid hibiscuses (hibiscusi?) can be grown, and even when they’re considered a perennial, they still typically die by the third winter.

Yeah, I’d imagine a tropical plant wouldn’t do well in MN! But that still doesn’t make it irreplaceable… more like “frequently replaced”.

not to mention, it may be a plant that’s grown from a cutting of a specific other plant; maybe from the owner’s dead mother, or from a particular trip- you never know, this could be a plant they grew from a cutting they took on their honeymoon or something. Some things are irreplacable for reasons that aren’t “you can’t get another thing which is physically the same”.

Could be irreplaceable for sentimental reasons?

Well, I have 2 lily plants that I can buy news ones at the store, but these came from a large plant from my grandfather’s funeral. I actually had to break it up into 2 and re-pot it because it got so big. I would consider those irreplaceable. Sure, I can get new plants, but the sentimental value would be gone.

Since the submitter was from Spokane, I’m guessing this isn’t a tropical setting. But I will say that, being from the Pacific NW myself, I’ve never seen a Hibiscus that looked like that plant in this area.

I bet if you just asked the owner you could get a cutting. No reason to just snap off branches.

It’s the PAN that’s cutting.

Stand back while I use stoner logic.
I don’t understand…it’s growing in a pot. Thus it must be pot.

I’m waiting to see what Weed Store’s response will be.

He’s gone off to cut a hibiscus.

From the root words “High” (a euphoric state induced by cannabis) and “Biscus” (a ghetto way to say biscuits.)

So, hibiscus is like pot brownies, without all the work?

Sure, blame the stoners.
We all know it’s a Hibiscus plant!
It’s those Hibiscus-crazed addicts taking cuttings!

And we all know that Hibiscus is a gateway to Geranium!

The second note might have been a note to him/herself. It’s the sort of thing I would do to remind myself/kick myself in the ass for being lazy.

You don’t speak to yourself in the second person, though?
I leave myself notes often. But when I use personal pronouns at all (which is rare, because I generally know who and what I was referring to when I wrote the note), it’s always “you” and “your”, not “me” and “my”. Because that’s just creepy!
