Neil - I've been doing some research and I'm pretty sure Planty the plant is actually an Abyssinian Nettle.That might explain your, ahem, "condition". I'd send over a few gallons of calamine, but as RD says, it's NBG.According to our local medicine man, the only thing that treats the sting of the Abyssinian Nettle is the Abyssinian Dock. Unfortunately, as you might have already surmised, the Abyssinian Dock is really very picky, and it only grows at very low altitudes in Abyssinia, which is something of a bummer, because most of Abyssinia is at rather high altitudes. There are even rumours that the Abysinian Dock will become extinct next Tuesday.
