Why I hate coconuts

We were playing Dungeons and Dragons and coming up to the big finale boss fight. House rules are that three 20s = instant kill.

The party decided to allow their pet sentient cactus to fight along with them after teaching it how to throw and retrieve a coconut. I went along with it for the laughs, treating it as an improvised weapon with pretty large negatives on dice rolls.

The very first round of the fight went to the cactus. The cleric instructed Needles the Cactus to throw his coconut at the boss.

MFW my uberboss was one-shotted with a coconut

MFW I had to think of how a coconut, thrown by a two-foot tall walking cactus, had managed to slay a black dragon.

Plant updates

My Henbane is beginning to flower, hopefully the normal color this year lol.

Rue and Angelica are growing like mad.

Poppies are continuing to bloom.

Chamomile is also getting ready to bloom, and my baby San Pedro Cactus has started to grow quite nicely.

I’m thinking I may start harvesting a bit of Belladonna next week as it’s starting to get quite nice berries on it as well as flowers.

Calamus and Dragon Tree are still growing slowly.

And one of my four Daturas I started at work (two strammonium, two inoxia), which has really been growing fast and has really been making my work nights go faster. I love stopping to smell the Datura lol.

I’ve been having a lot of fun cleaning up these friends for print.

Succulent dragons are a docile low-care species if you don’t mind a pet that spends a lot of time photosynthesizing.  Coming in a wide variety of colors and sizes, the smallest species are highly suitable for apartment dwellers.

These good creatures are available as prints and a variety of other items here.

cactus dragons

cactus dragons are spiky earth-tone colored bulky dragons without wings. they live under the ground, and have cactus-like growths on their body that they push up through the ground to catch water and sunlight for energy. their prey is whatever animal happens to be trying to eat their cactus growths, since they can feel the vibrations as creatures walk unknowingly across their backs to study the cacti. cactus dragons hoard succulents.

New Dragon Idea

Concept - dragons , but plant themed !

Dragons with forests on their backs, dragons who bloom in the spring but are the color of freshly dug earth until then .


Rose dragons , whose scales mimic petals so well that as it slumbers, rumors begin of a giant rose in a lonely cave that never wilts .

Orchid dragons, which come in so many varieties dragon hunters lost count.

Tiny forget-me-not dragons that fit in your hands , gentle little things that are sold for pets and endangered due to overhunting. It is rare to see one in the wild anymore.


Cactus dragons that roam deserts .
Seaweed dragons ! Dragons that have coral reefs on their backs.

Enormous bamboo dragons that are rarely seen awake or alive.

Imagine a world where dragons are the reason we have flowers and trees and other plants. When a dragon nests somewhere , their scales fall into the earth and sprout , and these sprouts are spread.

Small forests are sleeping baby dragons and are fiercely protected by the dragon preservation guilds - a group of humans devoted to coexisting in peace with the dragons and making sure dragons don’t go extinct.

Just. .. Plant dragons. I think it would be cool!

Harrisia pomanensis

Harrisia pomanensis is one of the plants whose fruit is called “Dragon Fruit”. Another cactus sharing this name is Hylocereus undatus, which is a larger plant. Both have red fruits adorned with bracts that call to mind a dragon’s scales. On the inside, the sweet pulp is white and peppered with many crunchy black seeds. We feature this cactus on our annual Fruit Tasting Tour, which takes place in October. This year, it will be on Sat., Oct. 14th.

-Brian

“For some reason our dragons really hate each other, but you’re a pretty cool guy and I want to hang out with you anyway.”

“Turns our our dragons weren’t fighting but really liked each other but we misunderstood and I swear that they are trying to get us together.”

“Dudes, you might want to hurry up, you’re late for class.” 

“Oh Crap, Run dude! Let’s go!”

Time Taken: 8 hours.

All characters belong to themselves.

The designs however belong to me I suppose.
