Home plants troubleshooting

20


20 per session - Virtual OK

I will provide advice for most common home plants care and propagation. I prefer to see a picture o video of your plant but can try diagnosis by description, as most plants have common problems and needs. I can also recommend a home plant for you. Skype consultations available.

Training & Qualifications


I have a degree in Biology, more than 15 years of experience as an experimental scientist and maintain a relatively diverse plant collection as Technical Officer (Biology) at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK.

Our plant collection includes most common home plants such as spider plant and Pelargoniums;
* several species of carnivorous plants,
* tens of species of succulents and cacti,
*lemon, banana and coffee trees,
* several ferns etc.
I also grow annual edible plants such as tomato, peppers, cress, beans etc.

I also have a blog about home plants: https://vicki1sthomeplants.wordpress.com/

Availability & Preferences


Any time.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
