Plantrama Reviews, Discovering New Plants, and Succulents for Boxes

This episode of Plantrama gives you a heads up about two great plants, talks about what happens when people find/discover a new plant and want to either patent it or otherwise bring it to market. We end with advise for Helen about her boxes in San Francisco.
