Professor Phil Dendron [1] is the world's greatest plant psychologist. [2] He wrote a series of books on the subject and sells his own brand of plant food named "Dendron's Own."

HistoryEdit

Janine Melnitz read all of his books. When a ghost thought trapped by the Ghostbusters possessed a geranium Egon gave to Janine, Dendron arrived to investigate. He was interested in procuring the plant for scientific study. At first he refused to let the Ghostbusters destroy the plant and attempted to communicate through love, but relented after it attacked him.

After Egon destroyed the geranium by over watering it and Winston Zeddemore finally trapped the entity that possessed the plant, Professor Phil Dendron showed his thanks by offering each of them an autographed copy of his next book "Geraniums I Have Known," which would feature a recording of the Ghostbusters' latest adventure in a chapter. Peter, however, said he'd wait for the movie.

List of Books WrittenEdit

  • "I'm Okay, Your Plant's Okay" [3]
  • "How To Be Your Begonia's Best Friend" [4]
  • "Mulch For Success" [5]
  • "Geraniums I Have Known" [6]

TriviaEdit

  • In the August 27, 1986 script, Dendron stated they need to use geometry to communicate with the plant, instead of love as stated in the episode. [7]
  • Three of Dendron's book titles were cut from the episode: "The One-Minute Horticulturalist," "When Bad Things Happen to Good Petunias," and "Peonies Are People, Too." [8] [9] [10]
  • On page nine of Ghostbusters Issue #5, Dendron makes a non-canon cameo in Manhattan.
