It’s officially spring now, so it seems appropriate that Lush is bringing some unexpected May flowers to its fans’ not-quite-April showers.

Lush has been a winner with people looking for more natural beauty products for years, with its ingredient-focused formulas and cruelty-free promises. Still, we’re betting nobody was planning to incorporate quite as much nature into their beauty regimen as these fans of the Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar, who began noticing tiny tendrils creeping up their shower drain.

Turns out the little green visitors are the result of discarded adzuki beans from the bar sprouting in the warm, damp environment of shower drains. The beans, which give the muscle-relaxing bar a gentle massaging feel, are common in Asian cooking and are perfectly safe, if slightly freaky when you step into your morning shower, only to find a miniature forest. As Lush cofounder Helen Ambrosen told Buzzfeed, “In order for the beans to germinate, they must have been left in the shower for a few days. The results you get just go to show how fresh the ingredients really are.”

Part of the problem, it seems, stems from people mistaking the massage bar—a solid coconut oil– and shea butter–based moisturizer spiked with cinnamon and peppermint oils and designed to relieve sore muscles—for soap. In fact, the brand specifically suggests using the product on dry skin and recommends storing it in a cool, dry place to avoid meltdowns or, apparently, starting your own garden. As we learned with everybody’s favorite coffee body scrub, there are just some things that don’t belong in your shower.

Want more beauty intel? Scope out these blending sponges, the beauty tool everyone’s obsessed with. If you’re ready to update your look for spring, try one of these hot hairstyles, and check out the best haircut for your face.
