For those of you that somehow missed it, today is Valentine’s day. Did you get your special someone a token of your love? Maybe a card, flowers, chocolate or perfume?
Speaking of perfume, did you know that corn plants use perfume to woo beneficial growth-promoting microbes to live among their roots? These bacteria can make iron and phosphorus more available to plants and stop harmful bacteria. Very cool!
So tonight, pull that someone special close and whatever you do, DO NOT tell your Valentine about corn perfume. Just forget about corn plants for an evening, it's Valentine’s day!
