Ronna Scoratow’s philodendron is 42 years old. According to the Wall Street Journal:
Ms. Scoratow has no children. Her siblings don’t share her enthusiasm for indoor greenery. So last year she put a provision in her will granting $5,000 for a friend to use in caring for the plant. “It was interesting,” her lawyer, James Wood, said when asked about that provision. “I’ve done provisions for pets but never a plant.”
If only my great great great great grandmother had left me her giant sequoia, but then again where would I put it?
