I wonder if it was deseeded. Could have sprouted a couple of seedlings in the nice, warm environment of the lung. Not to mention full of sunlight.

They don't need it to sprout, warmth and moisture is all they desire.

I found 3/4 of a partially eaten cheeseburger under a guy's belly fold once. Very attractive odor. No, I'm not joking.
