What is this plant? I picked up this fallen leaf at Ikea. I looked up popular succulent plant and it's not in the list. I'm currently trying to grow it as how you would grow an aloe vera from a leaf.

    I don't think there's a single wagie or guard retarded enough to stop me from taking a leaf off the ground in local large stores. Nobody gives a shit.

    Since you've already gotten an answer, I wanted to say that I'm pretty sure that echeverias need a full leaf to propagate, and unfortunately your guy is missing the front portion that contains stem tissue that allows for propagation. Definitely still try to propagate it, but don't feel too bad if it dies.

      Pinching off I can understand, but picking up a fallen leaf is basically giving it another chance at life. It’s an IKEA so it will just end up in the trash.

        I fully agree. Of course they don't want people pulling shit off the plants without buying them but if it's on the floor it's trash. The store wasn't going to prop those things themselves.

              Not sure about britbongistan but in the US trash is free to take as soon as it hits the curb.

              you can't trespass to steal trash, but as soon as it leaves the private portion of the property it's free game. Cops love this. Just ask that dude that killed those girls in idaho.

          The floor isn't a trash receptacle. It could be argued that it would be equivalent to taking shards of smashed ceramic if someone else broke a plate or pot in the store.

                Oh, I know.
                Picking trash up is legally theft. But that's not morally theft.
                You're not causing anything to someone by picking up fallen leaves, unless they plan to use it themselves, but in the case we're discussing they're obviously not.

                It's like supermarkets destroying their unsold stocks of food just so hobos and shit can't eat them.
                "If I can't sell it, nobody will have it"

                >Like going after the sorts of people that eat grapes in the produce section.
                In France you legally have the right to taste every food product before a purchase, so you can never be prosecuted for eating a grape.
                Most people don't know it, and of course, supermarkets and shit will never tell you.

                the legal argument is if you wanted the plant and couldn't pick up leaves you'd have to buy one. So you're costing them your own potential business. That's theft.

                It's the same argument about piracy.
                People picking up seeds, people pirating stuff would have not bought it in the first place.

                And like

                >it would be equivalent to taking shards of smashed ceramic
                only if the smashed ceramic then regrows so you don't have to buy a ceramic yourself

                said, they could make money out of pots and soils (or already fullgrown plants) which most people can't grow shit without.

                It seems sensible, but it's not a strong argument if you think aboht it.
                At this point you could sue me for hurting your business because I'd rather go to another supermarket to buy groceries, it's absurd.

                >I dkn't know about other countries.
                in practice nobody in the US is going to prosecute over a grape or two, that's terrible PR. They could, but they won't. Probably the same with taking leaves off the floor. Could prosecute but I seriously doubt anyone will.

                Well, I can't say I am knowledgeable about US, but they seem really trigger happy, regarding prosecution for the most absurd shit.

                Anyway I will keep growing my own scavenged shit, because I just love to see shit grow. And if I can help local species by spreading them around, I am not going to stop.

                nah, because then you're not costing me business. You weren't going to shop at my place anyways. But if you come to my shop and find what you need on the floor and walk out, you're presumably costing me business.

                Just because it's on the floor and ruined doesn't make it free to take. If that were true we'd be stomping on rib eyes every saturday.

                Yeah, or maybe I am just visiting to see what you have and stumble upon a leaf I could save.
                Maybe I was looking for something you don't have.
                Maybe I was getting some shit and picking the leaf up was just an unplanned bonus.
                Maybe picking this leaf up will make me buy a pot and soil for it, which I would not have bought otherwise.

                I can imagine situations where it benefits you, and situations where it does not. No point in what ifs.

                >I can imagine situations where it benefits you, and situations where it does not. No point in what ifs.
                law deals with those what ifs though.

                we both agree it's not morally wrong, we're just discussing how the stores and their lawyers see it.

                if you had no intention of shopping, you wouldn't be there. Even if you do buy something, that's not justification for theft. Right? otherwise I'd buy an apple and walk out with a prime rib and an apple.

                the other interesting question would be what if the leaf you picked up fell off a plant purchased by another customer? But that's still theft if it happens in the store, because now you don't need to buy that plant.

                The problem with all the what-ifs is if you didn't gain anything from being in the store, you wouldn't be there. And taking a leaf is a gain to you even if the loss to the store is only hypothetical.

                True, but that does not mean I plan to buy things, I may just have come to look at things.

                If you want to get around all that you can just ask permission.
                See a leaf on the floor. Go get a customer associate and ask if you can have it. They shrug and say, "Sure, why not?"
                then if anyone complains, Joe in Home and Garden gets fired and you get your leaf.

                we have a lot of homeless people that will just hang out in a store if the weather outside is too hot or cold or wet or dry.

                so being in a store with no intention of buying anything is against the law. Stores are careful not to enforce that law on potential customers, but you can tell by smell who's going to buy something and who isn't.

                It goes both ways though. The average american is extremely entitled and will rip you off any way they can. This goes double for the chronically homeless population.

                I've lived here 50 years now and never seen anyone shart themselves in the mart. It probably happens, but I've never seen it. Our typical diet isn't conducive to great butt health.

                the store will enforce the law up to a certain point. If they tell you to leave and you refuse, they're going to call the cops just to make sure it goes on your public record. Large stores employ security people. But they can't charge you with a crime or lock you in jail.
