I designed and sold terrariums, dish gardens, foliage plant arrangements and artificial plant light set ups as well as houseplants.I also do consulting for local businesses, nurseries, botanical gardens and conservatories.

Not only questions about growing foliage plants and starting seeds under artificial plant lighting but also questions about artificial plant light system set up, supplemental artificial lighting and cost. ~ I can help identify plants accurately ONLY if you submit a picture of the plant with your question.~
