Every week, I share something I learned in the previous seven days.

This week, I learned that the โ€˜Encephalartos woodiiโ€™ is the loneliest plant in the world, with only one known living example. Scientists are using technology to try and find a female. If they can't find a date using AI, then they might try and change the sex of the one they have!
