    As a kid, I always imagined a home filled with greenery when I grew up. Life, however, has been a bit hectic and though we are in the midst of quarantine in my state, it seems the first time I've settled in ages.

    I never had very much luck with plants before, I foolishly thought myself to be a natural at it, occasionally buying ferns for their aesthetics and either over-watering or forgetting about the poor things. My younger years were not kind to anything green, I'm afraid. And so it goes, after years of guilty avoidance, I have managed to come into ownership of an array of plants in a very short while that I have no knowledge or experience with.

    So here I am, friends. Let's hope for the best!

    Circediana, welcome to our "Green plant" world. And colorful flowers and veggies.
    Many of your new friends know a lot about several plants. What one doesn't know, another may be able to advise.
