Many of us have the beautiful leaves of our Spider Plant elegantly draped off of shelves and cupboards around our homes. But how much do we really know about them and why have they been studied by NASA?
Plant propagation is a really rewarding hobby that I find so fulfilling, and giving a gift that someone else can eventually pass on starts a really wonderful lineage between friends and family.
Being a botanist, it's no surprise to hear I love being around plants. Unfortunately, my current work means I'm in the office, tapping away at my computer all day. I created a terrarium with a tiny drawing table, so I could imagine myself in there too, drawing the little plants all around me.
