With a new name, a new look, a new mission and a new "To Be Continued In 2021!" tag.

The plant known as queen ivy, or Epipremnum aureumis, is also known as devil's ivy because it is almost impossible to kill and it stays green even when kept in the dark. It also has a reputation for causing severe ecological damage in some cases.  It rarely flowers without artificial hormone supplements, the last known spontaneous flowering was reported in 1964. And it is commonly known as a money plant in many parts of the Indian subcontinent.

She also has a new mission. With full control of her plants in the process too.
