Almost everyone has had a plant — and chances are you might have ~also~ killed one. (Don't worry, we have too.) Lucky for all of us, in our ninth episode of Don't Say Ad*lting, Jane and our Art Director, Becky, chat with Benjamin Futa, who has been a plant lover all of his life and founded The Botany Shop, a local indoor plant store.

He offers some knowledge, advice, and resources to help you keep your plant alive.

How often should you water your plant? How can you tell when you need to water your plant? What plants are best for beginners? Should we use fertilizers and pesticides? What apps can you use to help you with your plant? What common mistakes should we avoid when caring for our plants? These are just some of the questions we explore in this episode, so make sure to give it a listen!
