Plants surrounded me from when I was little. In the garden and even indoors, to me they were always interesting to look at and see them grow. They make for great decor, and I love taking care of them.
The hobby clicked when trying to make pictures of the plants, and learning about photography.

It was kinda by accident I was keeping track of growth of the plants, as friends asked about the plants and wanted to see them grow. That lead me to sharing the plants with plenty of others, as after a bit of practice more plants survive and thrive instead of wither away. There is almost something magical of seeing a gifted plant thrive at someone elses home, so I am glad to see more of it in the future.
