Seeds That Stick To Clothing: Different Types Of Hitchhiker Plants

Even now, they’re lingering along the roadside waiting for you to pick them up and take them wherever you’re going. Some will ride inside your car, others on the chassis and a few lucky ones will find their way into your clothing. Yes, weeds that spread by people, or hitchhiking, have certainly taken advantage of you this year. In fact, the average car carries two to four seeds for hitchhiker plants at any given time!

What are Hitchhiker Weeds?

Weed seeds spread in a variety of ways, whether traveling by water, by air, or on animals. The group of weeds nicknamed the “hitchhikers” are seeds that stick to clothing and fur, making it difficult to dislodge them immediately. Their variously barbed adaptations ensure that the seeds will travel far and wide via animal locomotion, and most can be eventually shaken off down the road somewhere.

Although it might sound like all fun and games, the weeds spread by people are not only difficult to contain, they’re costly for everyone. Farmers lose an estimated $7.4 billion each year in productivity to eradicate these pest plants. Humans are spreading these seeds at a rate of 500 million to one billion seeds a year in cars alone!

Although the weeds within crop stands are annoying, those that appear in fields can be downright dangerous for grazing animals like horses and cattle.

Types of Hitchhiker Plants

There are at least 600 weed species that travel by hitchhiking with humans or on machines, 248 of which are considered noxious or invasive plants in North America. They come from every kind of plant, from herbaceous annuals to woody shrubs, and occupy every corner of the world. A few plants you might be familiar with include the following:

  • “Stick-tight” Harpagonella (Harpagonella palmeri)
  • “Beggerticks” (Bidens) (Krameria grayi) (Tribulus terrestris) (Opuntia bigelovii) (Torilis arvensis) (Symphyotrichum lateriflorum) (Arctium minus) (Cynoglossum officinale) (Cenchrus)

You can help slow the spread of these hitchhikers by carefully inspecting your clothing and pets before emerging from a wild area full of seeding plants, making sure to leave those unwanted weeds behind. Also, reseeding disturbed areas like your garden plot with a cover crop can ensure that there’s too much competition for hitchhikers to thrive.

Once those weeds emerge, digging them out is the only cure. Make sure to get three to four inches (7.5 to 10 cm.) of root when the plant is young, or else it’ll grow back from root fragments. If your problem plant is already flowering or going to seed, you can clip it at the ground and carefully bag it for disposal – composting will not destroy many of these types of weeds.

Last, but not least, check your car any time you’ve been driving on unpaved roads or through muddy areas. Even if you don’t see any weed seeds, it wouldn’t hurt to clean your wheel wells, undercarriage and any other location where seeds might be hitching a ride.

this strain is just a headache and diziness no hype whatsoever

Was this review helpful to you? yes no

To begin: the flower was dense, dark green and purple, and loaded with crystals and lil burnt orange hairs. I ended up landing on this strain because I was looking for a versitile indica and this smelled amazing. Very fruity and yummy! Almost like a really fruity hard candy. I had this strain recommended to me before, but I ended up picking something else so I figured I’d finally try it. I packed a bowl in my bubbler and off I went! The taste had a hint of something like how laundry detergent smells, but it wasn’t bad. Very floral. Fruity candy taste also creeps in. Nice body affects at first. I felt fluid and droopy, nice and relaxed. Everything just slows right on down. However, I was allowed to focus extremely well when I wanted to. This had a touch of psychoactive-ness as well for me. Things were brighter and had more energy around them like auras. I felt groovy. Kinda talkative. The affects really changed by mindset, though. Overall I felt good, happy, giddy, and in control. Glowing.

Big Pokey Cactus Seeds

Big Pokey Cactus Seeds can be made in the Processor from Big Pokey Cactuses or obtained as loot or pet harvest from Parrokis.

One Big Pokey Cactus can be processed into 2 Big Pokey Cactus Seeds each without requiring any crafting recipe. These Seeds can then be planted on tilled land or on Dirt, Grass or Mud to grow into more Big Pokey Cactuses.

Grown Big Pokey Cactuses can be used in the Cooking Station to cook a wide range of Food. Food can be consumed by player characters to be granted many different buffs (positive effects) and also fed to Pets so that they can then be harvested from.

Seeds cannot be eaten by player characters or Pets directly.

You can grow Crops like Big Pokey Cactus from Big Pokey Cactus Seeds on tilled blocks of Dirt, Grass or Mud or on (non-tilled) Dirt, Grass or Mud. First place such natural blocks over a body of Water or Mineral Water, or alternatively place these liquids directly adjacent to each such block (like directly below for example, or at least corner to corner).

This can even be done underground in complete darkness and/or in a building, but not at too high altitudes, not in too cold nor too hot Biomes/layers, and not too close to Swamplands or pools of Bog Water. In these cases, Seeds will stay “fallow” and won’t grow (they can be picked up again though).

Next place the Seeds on the suitable blocks next to the liquid (just like you’d place any block). If you want to use tilled land, you need to first craft a Plow and use it on the solid blocks to till them. You can, but you do not need to fertilize Seeds in order to make your Crops grow faster.

Wait a bit until the Crops are ripe to receive the best harvest. Big Pokey Cactus needs 60 minutes (real-life-time) to grow from seeds into ripe plants, even if you’re offline.

Crops can be harvested by being “pulled” with the gauntlet and left mouse button (by default) just like any other type of block, item, plant or liquid. If Big Pokey Cactuses stay “ripe” for 20 RL hours, they will turn into “grown” Crops. The harvest will become a little less then, but Crops won’t wither.
