Physical Danger

Hanging out with flowers and trees might not sound too bad, but there are quite a few hidden dangers. You're dealing with exposure to chemicals, knives, sharp thorns, and potentially severe allergic reactions. Stems can be coated in a wide variety of chemicals, from pesticides to herbicides to who-knows-what, and there is a wide variety of aerosols and chemicals used daily in your average flower shop. Plus, every once in a while, a Venus fly-trap from outer space will ask you to start sacrificing humans to satisfy its bloodlust.
