Cute story--suspense was built to the end. Enjoyable!

What a fun story - I really didn't see the end coming. Let's hope another one comes up for her!!

Hmmm, okay, you get the sci-fi element with the gov. agent coming in for something. I assumed the plant was alien, or was about to sprout an alien! ^_^ Good job with the surprise ending. I was a little disappointed that it was so short. Maybe without the word count, you could expand it. The interrupted dialouge was good, overall, not too bad. ^_^ This is a nice twist from the heavier sci-fi stories.

Haha! Gee, do I wish this was a true story! The ending really surprised me. Great job. Keep up the good work!

Talk about fertile soil: you have a fertile imagination here! Excellent description. I found myself reading faster and faster. What a great surprise at the end! I'd like to write more, but I have to get out my seed catalog: and I thought I had no interest in growing green plants!

Good job with the intensity - and I DEFINITELY didn't see your (totally delightful) ending coming at all. Care to send me one of those pods? ;)

Cute. A money tree. Good job.

Oooo! I loved it! Too bad she didn't get to keep the plant!! :-) The dialog was wonderful, too. :-)

Too bad this is fiction - I'd like to get one of those money trees!

Captured me from the beginning and kept up the suspense right to the last word - a winner in my book.

You had me on pins and needles on what this 'pod' was going to have in it ... and I grossed at the oozing liguid. Good job for being so Scifi challenged! ;) I really enjoyed this!
LOL... I loved the suprise ending!
