Ever seen plants grow on a… keyboard? [Image, Video]

I do not know about others, but I, for one, do not have a green thumb. Me and plants do not get along. In fact, I probably couldn’t tell the difference between Poison Ivy and regular grass. (Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration. I think.) So it is safe to say I do no gardening. However, even someone as nature-illiterate as me would not have guessed that plants can grow on a keyboard. Check it out:

The particular plant you see growing on the above keyboards is called ‘Garden Cress’. And apparently it isn’t a very rare occurrence. Go figure.

Interesting fact: Garden Cress is an edible herb, meaning you can eat it. Imagine the possibilities — having your own stash of Garden Cress to nibble on while raiding Onyxia in World of Warcraft.
