An amaranth plant that looks quite a lot like Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu deity, has sprouted in the backyard of a Queens man. “They say God comes in many forms. I figure this has taken the form of a plant to come into my yard to bless me,” said the owner, who immigrated from Guyana three decades ago. “For it to have that long trunk like this is not a natural thing,” said a spokesman from the Queens Botanical Gardens.
