Peek Inside "The Botany Box"
Dive into the world of plants, and you'll discover a host of amazing characters, from the bold Venus flytrap, a carnivorous plant that catches insects and arachnids, to the shy Mimosa pudica, or "sensitive plant," whose leaves fold up and droop when touched only to reopen moments later.
Just like other living creatures, plants have distinct life cycles and anatomy. They're also incredibly important for life on earth. Humans and animals alike depend on plants for food and shelter. Plants are so amazing that there's an entire field of science dedicated to studying them: botany!
Your budding botanist is sure to love the theme of this box. Here's what you'll find inside...
