I have lots professional experience with houseplants.I ran my own online nursery selling plants and a local greenhouse nursery. 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. I am knowledgeable and experienced in the care of many different kinds of houseplants as well as the pests and diseases common to houseplants. I have had a lot of experience and success with most propagation techniques. I am also knowledgeable and experienced with artificial lighting for plants. I can answer questions about all aspects of 'indoor gardening'. 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.~
