My Adenium obesum (Desert Rose)—the plant that went on the plane.
Over fall break, I stumbled upon unexpected temptation—I didn’t expect to find succulent plants at the Renaissance Festival, and yet there they were. In spite of the plane ride back to school, I decided to grab a plant.
I tucked it carefully into my carry-on to go through security, but otherwise carried in in a brown paper bag in my hand. Surprisingly, no one said a word about it.
