Plot[edit | edit source]

The Eleventh Doctor and Clara Oswald visit the Arboretum — a giant interstellar greenhouse of the distant future that contains an example of every kind of plant life from Earth. They are given a tour by the Head Gardener — Percy who explains that the plants thrive on a special plant feed called floronite. The Doctor notices a web-like substance on an ash tree that doesn't look right. The gardeners explain it has only appeared over the last few weeks and is appearing everywhere. Further into the forest reveals more of the web.At its heart is a creature that reveals himself to be a meat eating Paranox Web.

As the Web snatches a flask of Floronite, the Doctor realises it is the floronite that is feeding the Web and making it grow so large. Emptying the Floronite away the Web is instead fed with plain water. The water dilutes the Floronite and the Web quickly shrinks back down in size to a harmless brain-seed. The gardeners vow to only use water to feed the plants in future and the Doctor and Clara leave taking the Web with them. The Paranox Web is released on a lonely plant asteroid a thousand light years away from Arboretum where both now have company.
