Lab Rats Season 2 Episode 5: Botany



This week Nicholas and Alayna are enthralled by the wonderfully wide world of plants! We climb the highest stems in the field of botany to learn about the oldest trees in the world, orchids and why some plants trap animals to get their energy.


Alayna interviews orchid expert Marc Freestone about his career, botanical knowledge and the Royal Botanic Garden’s plant conservation program.
