afl805.jpgRemember that amaranth plant growing in Queens in the shape of Ganesh? Yesterday the Daily News had talked to the Queens Botanical Garden about it, after a man claimed it containted healing powers, and the experts said they had "never seen an amaranth take an elephant-like shape ... the trunk-like formation is not a natural thing.'' A reader pointed out, however, that there is an amaranth plant with "amazing, huge purple heads with one trunk-like appendage that looks like an elephant head." And hey, guess what it's called: The Elephant Head Amaranth. So put a halt to your pilgrimage plans, and grow your own Ganesh for just $2.95 (enlightenment not included)!
