I admit it.
I was one of those people that Aaron Newton was referring to who would have been asking “Don’t those come from the sea?” I am a little cosmetically challenged and have never seen these sponges anywhere other than the BodyShop and I (wrongly) assumed that they were cousins of the cuttlefish.
However, I’m not too proud to admit that I can be flexible as a paradigm shifts through my worldview.
Well…according to Aaron, Luffa sponges can be grown on a vine and they resemble a cucumber – probably because they come from the same family. If you’re interested in growing one visit his blog and check this very helpful post.
