This behind-the-scenes tour with Chad Husby, Botanical Horticulturist at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens is nearly 30 minutes (yes, I said a half hour) of pure plant palaver. Husby drops knowledge bombs like trees drop leaves in Autumn and we highlight over 30 plant species, (more than 1 per minute!), which should keep you hooked to the screen. I should also say that I’m not in frame this time around b/c I was totally a one-woman show on this interview, so you’ll hear me chiming in off camera. I could have easily turned this into a 3-part episode—as Chad took me through well over a hundred species—but decided to keep this brief but meaty, particularly for all the folks who INSIST that I must have longer episodes (Believe me, you’re in the minority)! Alright, hope this satisfies your plant urges! Oh, and this episode is lovingly produced by Michael Chu-A-Kong, Founder of The Rloveution, who thoughtfully gave to my Kickstarter for How to Make a Plant Love You: Houseplant Masterclass. __ Homestead Brooklyn’s Plant One On Me is an informal question-and-answer series on all your green home and gardening tips as well as insider tours, interviews and travelogues.

    I think everything is wonderful and I am sure the thumbs down are for the music that comes all of a sudden breaking the peacefulness of your videos and voice. The world is a constant “nails on the blackboard” for us with misophonia. I really hope plantarina doesn’t decide to put music in her videos.

    Would somebody please buy that man a hamburger he talked about what he had to do in a week no wonder he's so thin he worked himself to death. In Japan they talked about people renting a bed in like a wall of pods for them to just sleep in. I can't wait till they do that here I'd totally get me a bed to sleep there at night. And hey, you guys form a line, everybody get behind me no cutting in line!
