Share the Plants You’ve Grown

Potted house plants on tables and counters of a library room
Shown in a January 2021 photo are plants from the Clinical Center’s department of bioethics. While staffers telework, their greenery was collected for communal tending.

For many NIHer’s, growing plants at home has provided a welcome respite from the past year. 

We’d like to hear from you about the plants you’ve been growing. 

Send a high-resolution color photo with a brief caption explaining what the plant means to you to Scientific plant names are preferred.
