    I thought this was very interesting. I actually work in a lab where we do plant tissue culture and micropropagation so when I first saw this article awhile back it stood out. Plants can be amazing organisms.

    But the leggables have been around a lot longer than seeds.

    There were leggy arthropods long before there were seed bearing plants.
