Dont let the stem fool you. After viewing DMC's or whatevers video of a bowl full of stems and i tried it myself, i no longer pick them out. I love stems in the shisha, its almost like those little characteristic dents in your cheap car, yea it might lower its value, but it adds character, and behind ever dent is a story. That is a small price to pay for the complexity it adds.

Im not sure if this really makes sence as i am under the influence of alcohol. But tomorrow morning we will find out.

Lol at work when I have to install some hardwood floors we always say the more chips and scratchs on the floor that we have to fill with wood filler means the more "character" the floor has. lol

That is quite ironic. In my house we just ripped up the carpet and now our whole house is hardwood flooring. Is is not in the best shape because there are a few stains here and there, but still, it adds character and gives is a unique look. Not to mention that there is a nice blood stain in the living room from me when i split my face open and blood started gushing everywhere. Now i have a stain and a scar to tell the story.

Good god! Normally, I don't really care about stems. The biggest one I ever came across was a little over an inch long, and I was going nuts over it. But wow! That thing's a monster!

I have found huge log stems in several brands of tobacco. Nakhla usually has a decent amount of little fat stem pieces, but that's a Sequoia!

Put the stems in the bottom, helps keep the holes from getting clogged!

Are you sure this doesn't clog your bottom with stems?

Yep I wanted to give my Brazilian wood floor character, the guy wanted $4,000.00 to beat the floor with chains. I left it and after four years it has character. Woody stems are a part of shisha.
