Favourites: Indoor plants are my favourites. I grew up between my mother’s and my grandmother’s house and, though they were very different environments, lush plants were a fixture in both places. If I had to name a favourite one, this would be my Ficus lyrata! I like its hard yet fragile leaves, as mysterious as the sound of the instrument the plant derives its name from.
