Randy McDonald is shown with Asian sacred lotuses, at his nursery in Reseda. Eight years ago, McDonald stealthily took a small piece of Echo Park Lake's sacred lotus. He took the piece back to his nursery and grew tons more of it. By 2008, the lotuses had all died off at Echo Park Lake and people working on the Echo Park Lake revitalization project reached out to him. In the end, they agreed to pay him $30,000 for 376 lotus plants, all with roots to the stolen offshoot.
