Plants are so often missing from science shows but plants are amazing, from the humble dandelion to the majestic giant redwood. Oh they are amazing!

This show covers some of the most strange, fascinating and just plain weird members of the vegetable kingdom.

From the seed dispersal of the coconut to the insect catchers via the flameproof cones of the cone pine and true Dracula plants as well as many others.

Specimens and atmospheric pictures are all found in this little show.

With some astonishing facts about some of our common house plants you will never look at your weeping fig the same way again and probably a few tips on how to grow them.
