'Oh! My Greens' Ep. 10: Summer battle to save dying tropical plants



Faced with a pot of dying Satin Pothos, Liang Si worried that she would kill it on her first day as a volunteer gardener. Thankfully, she got Mr Cheng, a master gardener.

During the battle to save the plant, Mr Cheng shared his story. He used to be a commuter, working 12 hours a day and six days a week for 10 years. The high-stress job made him anxious until he started growing plants, which brought him peace to his inner self.
