I think this is Amaranthus Paniculata, growing in the front garden that I am working on planting. It has really taken over the spot where six seedlings were planted earlier this year. I was reading a garden forum and they say its an annual but the six seedlings I transplanted came back on their own, and from the looks of this have spread just this growing season.

I came across these pics on the net of a recent fad in Japan. Apparently the pocket pet crazy has extended into living things. You can grow these little plants on your key chain in these mini terrariums, and once they get to be too big you can just pot them up into a larger pot and start all over. These pics seem to be of some Cacti and Succulents. I wonder how easy it would be to make something like this, in Japan they retail for about 1000 yen.
