Fun, interesting + informative plant info

Definitely one of my go to podcasts while working from home. I like to mix up my podcasts between light and fun and educational and informational. This podcast happens to be a combination of both. Love it!

Goldfish Plant

Just listened to the Goldfish plant podcast…thank you for this podcast! I’ve been struggling with my goldfish plant and your tips are super helpful…..I’ve loved your other podcasts as well….but this one came along at exactly the right time…so hopefully I can save my goldfish plant now….thanks again!

Truly a perfect podcast

I’ve been a podcast listener for over 5 years now and don’t usually find myself leaving reviews, but this podcast truly deserves more recognition.

Rachel truly does an amazing job of breaking down plant care and other topics in a way that is very easy and fun to understand (even when it comes down to the science). I love that she includes other subject matter experts in the podcast and even goes into the history of particular plants or botany as a whole.

I often have a hard time finding podcasts that can keep me interested but Plant School has truly become a favorite. I’ve learned so much from Rachel and I regularly find myself listening to old episodes just for a refresher on my plant care (and honestly because I just can’t get enough).

Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this podcast and I’m beyond grateful for the knowledge it has given me!
