The Weird and Wacky Plants Project

I have loved plants since I was just 5 years old, and I especially love unusual, odd, weird plants, and plants that do things you don’t expect them to…! My career has taken me all around the world in my quest to find and learn more about plants!

I have now brought all this together in the Weird and Wacky Plants Project! With help from some of the world’s most prominent plants-people, you can join me on an hour’s visual journey through the fascinating plant world! We’ll look at plants with super powers, plants that move themselves, plants with sexual prowess, plants that smell of weird things, and lots lots more!
