Crowdfunding since 2010

A book about the fate of urban houseplants and an artistic plea for a new perspective on plants. With money tree "Lehman" and many more.

"Urban Plants - Bio-Biografien" is a book about the fate of urban house plants and an artistic plea for a new perspective on plants. Money Tree "Lehman", Succulent "Emily Sensorship" or Orchid "Technical Influence" are three of 100 plant personalities - saved by the Pflanzenklappe® (plants hatch) and conveyed by botanoadopt® - who are humorously and poetically staged through photographic portraits and textual biographies.
