The Plant #6

We met The Plant through common friends, which is how we usually get plants in our flats as well, so this made perfect sense. Besides providing botanical contents in a simple, personal and cozy way, The Plant offers plant lovers a new look at greenery by featuring the works of many creative people who share our love for plants. As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monograph on a specific plant; bringing together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. These people share with The Plant their unique perceptions and experiences of plants.

Issue 6 celebrates the splendour of cherry blossoms in Japan captured by Daisuke Hamada, assorted orchids by Lena C. Emery and the domestic charm of badmothers everywhere: the spider plant.

Coke Bartrina and Enrique Giner de los Rios guide us through the multiple landscapes of Mexico City. French artist Camille Henrot talks reactionary ikebana with Amy Sherlock and Osma Harvilahti goes deep into the coconut palms of Ghana. It also investigates the cosmic potential in Hereford soil at Fern Verrow and Kyushu’s onsen in Secret Foliage. With stops in Versailles gardens, Sydney's rock pools and the badlands of industrial Berlin, the travel ends back in Japan with photographer Rinko Kawauchi y in Shogatsu.

There's more! Enjoy the tale of the Indian sandalwood bandit, cinematic adventures in the maze of childhood and Scheltens and Abbenes recipes. And most importantly! Find a spider plant that you like, with a monograph on this issue's chosen plant.

Btw, The Plant is a perfect match for all the lovers of the Grow Your Own tshirt!
