Apr 13 2010Growing With Comic Books: Manga Farming


Ever wonder if you could grow plants between the pages of a comic book? Well the answer is yes. You could do the same thing with a porno magazine too if you really wanted, although I don't even know if those exist anymore since the internet was invented. Two Kindles probably won't work though (although you should still try and send pics).

Tokyo-based artist Koshi Kawachi recently demonstrated his "Manga Farming" technique -- which uses old manga as a growing medium for vegetables -- by cultivating a crop of radish sprouts in an installation at the Matsuzakaya department store in Nagoya.

Cultivating radish sprouts in a department store, eh? I don't know about you, but the only thing I've cultivated at a department store is a bumper crop of boners. Walmart bra and panty section, anybody? No? YOU'RE THE PERVERTS HERE, NOT ME.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of how not to grow weed.

Thanks to Melissa, who once grew a coca plant between the pages of a self help book about drug addiction. Oh wow.
