Anyone who has ever experienced Gympie Gympie sting would know ,Is nothing sacred anymore?
The large leaves of the Macaranga are not bad.
Just dont use the sort of similar looking gympie gympie leaves, you will only make that mistake once:_o:
Here are some pics of the two growing together.
I know there's another plant that looks very similar here although I'm not sure what it is called .
I wouldn't go anywhere near it just in case.
I've been stung at least a couple times , the dogs too .
Realistically if you did manage to squat on a plant , as the story goes you may become a statistic.
