The wormhole slowly lengthens as the flower grows, allowing the plant to shift nutrients from periods of plenty back in time to periods of famine, ensuring survival over hundreds -- or in one case, millions -- of years. Various specimens are World Heritage-listed because careful use allows certified researchers to observe the American Civil War or a herd of [...]
