I have learned many professional plant care secrets over the years and I enjoy sharing those secrets with others. I am writing a book that reveals many of these secrets.
Matching an indoor plant to the available light is the single most important element in indoor plant care. Unnecessary repotting is the single most common cause of plant problems. The "common sense" advice dispensed elsewhere is often out-dated and inappropriate for the home environment.
