Inside Plants Live

  • Interesting reading
  • Non-scientific
Blogs are getting better at disguising themselves, which isn’t all bad. When I went to Inside Plants Live, I scanned through the abundant information at the site and found it most informative to read. After I clicked on the About the Site link, I discovered I’d been actually enjoying a blog, of all things. While one might quibble with exactly what is and is not a blog, I think what matters is what the site considers itself and more importantly, the value of its content. On the latter matter I can give high marks. With monthly entries dating to 2004, articles categorized into over 20 topic areas, abundant pictures, and a lack of attitude generally linked to blogs, Inside Plants Live is one of my most pleasant finds of the year. While it is low on the science end of things, it is great reading.
