If your Instagram feed is any indication, plants have blossomed into an obsession. But, is #PlantParenting a one-way relationship, or does Rob the Rubber Plant have feelings about your new #greenthumb?  


In this episode, Erika, Niki and Jay explore this thorny issue with pioneering plant researchers  Ian Baldwin, Jack Schultz and Monica Gagliano. Mi’kmaw narrative artist and conservation ecologist Shalan Joudry challenges us to explore the language and intention we use to describe plants, and to understand how this affects our relationship with them.
