Grass growing in my toilet..

I walked into my basement bathroom (don't use it much) and found grass growing in the base of my toilet. Maybe I should try bamboo.

My Viridis grove is growing right on top of our septic field so we always check for wayward rhizomes before...um, sitting down on the Johnny...those rhizome tips can be quite nasty...

Are you sure it wasn't bamboo?

I doubt it, my chinchilla is in the bathroom so some of his seed probably bounced into it. I could put some moso seeds there and see if they grow though.

I noticed that all the grass is dead except for above my grandmas septic tank.
Time for a grove!

Any taller, and it would reach up enough to give you a surprise tickle!

Looks and sounds to me, like an idea for a self-watering, self-fertilizing invention, just screaming for a patent.

Let it grow bigger and you don't need toilet tissue.

Hmmmm, a toilet that grows it's own tissue. Patent pending...

I wouldn't call it a soft toilet tissue, though. And is tough enough to avoid "break through's"?

I thought about the self watering toilet idea before too. It would at the very least be a great conversation piece.
