Your teacher Iris is a marketer by day and an avid gardener and succulent hoarder by night. She got her first succulent cutting three years ago, and there was no turning back. She’s still learning all the scientific name of the plants she owns. She loves growing, looking and talking to them. If she were a plant, she would be a finger jade in a tin can.
