Planting the Topeka Zoo

TL;DR Topeka Zoo horticulturist Rick Knight thinks about the animals first when he decides what to plant. He's a bit afraid of the animals but, ironically, loves the bugs. He cautions against "plant blindness" and says having a green thumb is no more than folklore.
Rick Knight's first selfie. Plant is dancing doll ginger. It's the first time it's bloomed in 19 years.
