this was funny:

"Some people actually love these bizarre plants."

I got 18 out of 20 which is partly luck as I guessed at a few. I didn't find many factual errors in the quiz, which is rare.

17/20 but I still feel stupid

Organ Pipe NM was a tricky question.
Who ever heard of Cockscomb?
Cactus spines are used to reproduce? In what species please?

Don't some opuntiads use spines to promote vegetative propogation. Segments getting stuck on animal fur and being spread to other areas, that sort of thing.

That's all I've got :?


(I got 17/20 first time through, and missed Organ Pipe, the Spines and E. adelkuri's etymology.)

I pondered the reproducing spine question but two of the others were very true, so it had to be all of the above. (making many leaps of faith and logic)

I missed the coxcomb question, too. I only know it as that thing stuck to a chicken head. I also missed the "orchid cactus" question. Orchid cactus? I must not get out enough...

18/20 - an entertaining diversion, TFS!

There are some pretty bizarre quizzes on that site! I was looking around to see if you could create your own quiz, apparently not. :(

14/20

Some of those questions were ambiguous. For example, the question regarding what to do with a succulent cutting -- some people say stick it in dry soil, and some say let it callus over first. :roll: I guessed let it callus over and got it right.

I did like that they gave an explanation for each answer.
My mind works in mysterious ways.
