Did you know that Viagra also make flowers erect? Oui, Viagra is good not only for treating male impotence.

Israeli and Australian researchers have discovered that small concentrations of the drug dissolved in a vase of water can also double the shelf life of cut flowers, making them stand up straight for as long as a week beyond their natural life span.

They have tested Viagra on strawberries, legumes, roses, carnations, broccoli, and other perishables.

In this research they found that 1 mg of the drug (compared with 50 mg in one pill taken by impotent men) in a solution was enough to prevent two vases of cut flowers from wilting for as much as a week longer than might be expected.
