Uta Tachibana's persimmon seed pot grew a mysterious mushroom!!

Uta Tachibana planted Persimmon seed on May 30

My friend, Hiroshi Tachibana's son just planted Persimmon seed on Sunday, May 30. Hiroshi's wife, Tina Schneider wrote about the planting below. Please check out his son, Uta's site with his drawings, his favorite bands, movies and great interview session with Uta Tachibana at

"This morning Uta planted a tree seed given to him by our friend Hiroshi Sunairi ('The good Hiroshi', as he has come to be distinguished by Uta). This seed is very special because it is a great grandchild of a Hibaku Tree. Hibaku means something that has experienced a nuclear bomb. These are the trees that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, on August 6, 1945.

Hiroshi Sunairi is fostering many of these seeds, placing them in homes all over the United States and the world. His efforts will culminate in an exhibition, where the seedlings will make their debut, at The Horticultural Society of New York in December 2009. We are so honored to take part."

Then one day my friend, Hiroshi, the father of Uta told me that a strange mushroon started to grow in persimmon seed pot.....not a persimmon here is the pic. Though it is mysterious where it came from......but Congratulations, Uta for cultivating a life!!!

"The other day I told you about Uta accidentaly pushing the mushroom and killing it, however, the new mushroom started to sprout again."
---Hiroshi Tachibana


Oh, I guess, Congratulations, again Uta!!
