      Hi Sean & Ben,

      My favourite plants right now are plants with seeds that can survive extreme conditions, like a vacuum in space, or high temperatures in deserts. For example, the seeds of most stone plants (Aizoaceae family) can survive being in an oven that is over 100 degrees Celsius!
