A sea of cheery maranta leuconeura. Maranta is a genus native to tropical central and South America, and was named after botanist Bartolemeo Maranta. I’ve written a bit about the maranta plant and the man behind the genus a few times, and I’ll link them in my story for you to read. Overall, Maranta was quite an interesting and (in my opinion) strange man, known mostly for his written work regarding antidotes to poisons. Maranta apparently claimed that some antidotes were tested on criminals condemned to death, and claimed the concoctions were infallible - citing the physician or pharmacist’s lack of experience if they failed. In the 1570s two physicians were expelled from the college of physicians for overprescribing and somewhat reformulating the controversial drug at the center of these claims - Theriac - which left Maranta subject to criticism. He was also an Aristotelian literary critic, and an avid fan of poetry as a philosophic learning tool, claiming vivid discourse demonstrates concepts or ideas in the most effective way. #historyofplants #peoplebehindtheplants

Whatever Wednesday. The plant i've always had difficulty with, Epipremnum pinnatum and I live close to a native range for these guys 🙄🙄🙄. I've killed about eight of these from cutting. This one has finally rooted into the pole, but now I realise the pole will be too small for any further growth if this season holds. Maybe i'll commandeer a neighbour's tree. 😏😏😏

"I'm angry, inspired, I'm on fire 
and I'm sitting on my bed 
Throwing a tantrum while playing my guitar again"
