Why is it so hard to keep plants alive? How can we understand plants better? This is the question Flora Vulgaris is looking to answer. Can we perhaps see plants as human beings? Having plants can be difficult: they take up space and make a mess – it is similar to having a messy roommate. These comic strips seek to explore the relationship between plants and their owners, much like a relationship between two roommates that don’t always get along.
