I like the unusual, striking looking plant in the right place. Though you wouldn't want a garden full of them. Thumbs up for me. icon_thumright

I have never understood the appeal of hideous plants, just cos no one else has one :lol: , probably because they have good taste, what pleasure can you get from looking at an ugly plant? :? :lol:

thats a bit like looking at the pig down the road saying 'who;d marry that?' yet her hubby thinks shes drop dead gorgeous. different people have different tastes.

personally i think its 'different' (the plant, that is) and therefore would grow one in with the spotty dottys etc

I like being a bit different but this is certainly one step too far for me! It really does look like a puddle of puke or a great big lumpy piece of snot.

Off Topic, but having been away for a while, I didn't realise Mark and Gaz had such a brilliant website. Well marketed and designed. Hats off to them!

Definitely not a looker Kyle and certainly different :lol: Unusual/ugly. Apparently 10 photos of the worlds ugliest plants :shock: I dunno what it says about my choice of plants but I would gladly grow half of these given the opportunity :lol:

Looked in on Mark and Gaz's blog a couple of times, worth popping in to.
