Botanophobia- Fear of plants.

 

As part of my short horror script one of the criteria is that it is based on a phobia, after some research I have decided to base my horror script around Botanophobia, which is the fear of plants. I came across this phobia and thought that I could make a great story about it as plants are something you see almost everywhere. After doing further research about this phobia I have found out that it’s not always just a fear of all plants, sometimes just a specific plant, phobias are usually cause by two things, either genetically or encountering a traumatic event. With any phobia the symptoms vary depending on the level of fear, the symptoms typically include anxiety and anything to do with panic such as, sweating, heavy breathing, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, etc.
