I'm from Rhode Island, and I came upon this forum while searching for some info to help me with a jade plant
(see the current 'jade plant
questions' thread in houseplants). I'm a selective gardener, I used to live in the country, with a large garden where I initially grew mostly vegetables with some flowers
for decoration, and by the end mostly flowers
with some tomatoes and greens for salads.
Now I'm in the city. I don't have many plants
. I have two rosemary plants
that are five years old and getting large that I bring in every winter, this jade plant
, a clivia which I am extremely fond of, and a bunch of orchids. I used to have many orchids that did very well, but I went traveling for a year and in the care of friends most of them died. So I have a few that are left, and a few more that I bought, but my house doesn't have the light for them, so tney are in a holding pattern until I go somewhere else.
So I don't know that I'll have much to contribute, except in select areas, but it's nice to find you all.
