What bullshit that's turned out to be.
I have been growing only a few, but what a headache. First of all, triffids don't stay put. They move around. Secondly: they are highly venomous. Not the sort of plant you want to take on in a fight, hey. You should never ever turn your back on a triffid.
I feel relatively safe now because I have them all secured behind a few layers of chicken wire. But whenever they look to be trying to escape? Or I hear them moving in the night? I get feeling alarmed. I get thinking...maybe you guys need put down.
I certainly don't mean put down the garbage chute. They could maybe take over this entire building, if I did that.
Here's my plan for putting down my triffids. Any day now.
First...here's your daily water jug, guys. But today it's a special one. Chlorine bleach. I know I'd need to apply it with rubber gloves and a gas mask and goggles and a rubber apron on...'cause they are bound to fight. Then phase two: guess it's snipper time. Then phase three: burn 'em. I won't feel safe or be satisfied until they are ash.
Take my advice. If someone offers you some seeds to make some really fun plants...say NO.
