Snail Plant

Our Free Wallpaper for this week is something very interesting that Steve found. It is a Snail Plant! This is a very unique plant and there is only one of them in the entire world! So what exactly is a snail plant? Well, you'll have to read on to find out about it. And then you might want to get a copy of the photo for yourself.

I'll let Steve tell you about the Snail Plant in his own words.

"This snail shell probably held the seed for this plant. The root went seeking soil and pushed the shell off the ground . The leaf is just opening up from the seed casing."
