Hello fellow Plant Fiends,

I just joined today after having been referred by DrDawg, Mr. Ken Ramsey. I purchased a Ficus Alii tree from him this week. It arrived yesterday and is getting acquainted with its new roommates.

I was lucky enough to be able to start my gardening passion about 5 years ago when I got my own little postage stamp of a yard and transformed it from a weed patch to a nice place to hang out and watch birds. Outdoors, I'm into Japanese maples and succulents. I also collect tillandsias, which I keep indoors in my bathroom (it has a nice skylight), and numerous other houseplants.


I look forward to learning a lot about plants and fellow members.
Thank you!

Hi everyone,

Thank you! Yes it is cozy. Smiling

My assistants...well, sometimes they are good at helping with weeding, but sometimes they are worse than really bad garden pests. Sticking tongue out
