"With attention and care, one can grow a plant for flowers or fruits.  This may take a period of time and may have some flowers or leaves or none of those.

Without attention and care, one just let grasses grow. They will grow very fast and spread over wherever they can."

Does it make a difference? There has always been flying daggers and flying swords, to catch on is very unlucky and has karma implications. The one which survives surly will die eventually.  MU
