Wisconsin FastPlant

Wisconsin FastPlant has developed a plant that goes from seed to seed in about 35 days. That is, if you plant a FastPlant seed, the seed will grow into a plant, which then creates more FastPlant seeds in just 35 days.

The plants are great for genetics experiments. The company also offers fast-maturing butterflies that develop in about 30 days. For more information, see
