The New Botanist
Author: Andrew Galloway & Carinne Piekema
The New Botanist aims to help new plant parents to care for their plants. There is such an overwhelming amount of information out there on how to care for houseplants, some of which conflicts. For this podcast, we focus on a particular houseplant discussing the pros and cons of keeping, and most crucially how to care for it. We also discuss some mysterious terms such as 'indirect sunlight', various growing techniques and lift the veil some of those widely held factoids.

Prayer Plants are formed of several genera of plants, all of which have striking foliage. The leaves of these plants also move, closing during the night and opening during the dawn resulting in their common name. These bold houseplants were first discovered deep within the Amazon jungle. The ornate foliage of Prayer Plants caused its rapid popularity in the 70s, making a comeback fairly recently.
