Fumiko Ladd Chino: I am officially now a ‘plant pusher’

Fumiko Ladd Chino shared a post on X:

If you see me before I leave Manhattan, please know that I am officially now a ‘plant pusher’.

I WILL be giving you a plant (or several) as I try to rehome many of my beloved (fostered and propagated during the cold dark years of peak covid) before I depart to Houston.”
