NASA astronaut Scott Kelly can brag about having a green thumb all day long, and we wouldn’t mind at all. He’s earned that right by successfully growing the first flower in space after the zinnia plants the ISS crew planted almost died.

The astronauts started growing zinnias late last year, but a mere two weeks later, the team noticed symptoms of excessively high humidity and limited air flow. The plants’ wicks (seed containers), for instance, leaked water, and the leaves became unnaturally bent and curled.

Around Christmastime, things came to a head when some of the plants grew mold.
