Human Fertilizer T-Shirt:
Few plants have gathered so many closet-skeletons as orchids have. During the 19th-century, the bounty on orchids in England had become so excessive that orchid hunters would do practically anything to get their greed-deranged hooks into the rare stuff, including slaughtering anyone who stood between them and their reward. But as they say, the payoffs of greed rarely-if-ever exceed its costs.
Because orchids thrive in places that are inhospitable to people, such as in primeval swamps and jungles, it wasn’t unusual for these poachers to enter the forbidden lands never to re-emerge, for such are the wages of Karma; a life for a life.
As Susan Orlean recounts in The Orchid Thief, an orchid poacher in New Guinea “found some good orchids growing on human remains. He collected the plants and sent them to England still attached to ribs and shin bones.”
