White Bird of Paradise

Flowering White Bird of Paradise - Strelitzia

White Bird Of Paradise

Added new photographs today, including the interesting and always white, White Bird of Paradise. These Strelitzia are used in interior landscapes and I have only seen them with a bloom in exterior gardens or greenhouse environments. They may bloom indoors but I have never seen this happen and I have cared for many of these plants. Strelitzia nicolai is the name. Added a few other pictures too. Check them out on the plant pictures page Thanks

Help With Your Houseplants

Orchid Flower Purple

My Pretty Purple Orchid

I have just been visiting at a website called Reviewing some of the posts on indoor plant care, I noticed that the plants people posted pictures of in the Garden Web Forum looked as though they needed lots and lots of help. Often the post authors did not know what kind of houseplant they had and needed an indentification.
I guess I may be kind of picky when it comes to the way an indoor plant looks because in the interior landscape business, your plants (or should I say the customer’s plants) always have to look good. And, as with people, a plants appearance says everything about its health and care.
I wanted to sign in on the Garden Web Forum and give some help and advice but the “Terms of Service” for the site was so long that I got scared and left the website without signing in. Read more and get help with your indoor tropical plants questions

Help with Your Houseplants (skip the Info Farm Sites)

I don’t know about the rest of you out there, but I can’t tell you the number of times I have contacted someone via their website contact information, never to hear from them. It is usually the norm, unfortunately.
I have a website called and I let folks know I am willing to help them, if I can, with their houseplant problems or questions. I have answered every reader that has posted or sent a question and some of them I know were just spammers trying to get an email to send their “junk” to.
If you do need help or have a question, I will do my best to help you. I am not one of those people that is posting information they are reading out of a book, I have worked in the interior landscape business for over 20 years and so have a lot of practical experience with indoor plant care. The kind you cannot get anywhere else.
So, unlike the information farms out there, I practice what I preach. And from what I have seen and read, alot of the information on the Info Farm Websites is incorrect.
Anyway, I will answer you so you know where to find me! Post here or on the contact page.
PS…Spam will still get deleted, spammers are wasting their time and mine.
