What is this? A contest? Is there a cash prize if we guess you plant without a location or a photo?

How about telling us the location where the plant was seen. Most everyone can snap at least a cell phone photo, give us a look at the plant; even a blurry, sideways pic is better than no pic at all..

Oh, and golly gee. Where are my manners? Welcome! To ATP.

I agree Manners are important. Also important is the manner in which we ask our questions. Good questions result in good answers. Everyone else will end up with RLE and have to learn to live with it. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing See you in the Sandbox! Whistling

Ha, when I get my check each month I often say, "That stinks!" I usually have month left over at the end of my money.
But no worries; my money does not last long enough to develop a fungus. Rolling on the floor laughing

I love to guess. Rarely I am correct in this forum. But it's fun guessing. I am constantly amazed at the knowledge of a variety of plants, wildflowers and weeds found on this thread. I will not ever to come up to the knowledge level of those found on here, I will take 50 cents for each correct guess I make. You're welcome!

I agree that the OP is not a serious plant enthusiast. Probably has more important things to occupy his mind and his time.

His statement "i will snap a picture to send when i get a response back" was made a couple of days ago, he has received a ton of responses and still no photo. Shrug! Confused Oh, Whistling maybe he is loss in the woods or got attacked by Coyotes. Maybe he slipped on some slippery fungus and is lying helpless in the wilderness of Pennsylvania.

Or there's the possibility that no one responded with @pacoyotehunter in their answer so he would know you had an answer.
