Tips and Treasures


  • From Douglas: “I had an AV go through a very long and heavy blooming cycle, and now that it’s over the crown looks stunted. It’s not a pest or disease, I’m guessing it’s from lack of light.  Will this recover, or is it time to start a new plant?”
  • From a Million People: “When are the old episodes going to be back on the website?????”

A Look at the Stands

  • A more in-depth look for our first look in quite some time.
