Default Hello all, another new guy here

Hey All:

Just wanted to take a second to introduce myself. I'm Jonathan, currently back in my hometown of Nevada, IA after seven years on the East Coast (NYC and DC).

Though I currently own no bananas, they have always interested me. And besides, I'm an absolute tropical-aholic. I look forward to learning many things from these forums.

-Jonathan

Hey all:

Thanks for the awesome welcome!

Hehe....I can already tell I'm gonna love this place. Already contacted someone about purchasing some kick-arse sagos!

As for your question Kylie, I've got many things going right now. From the time I was born until I was about 25, my mother owned and operated a small greenhouse here in the midwest. We always lived in a small place with no yard, so our only way to garden was indoors and on the patio. So as long as I can remember I've been experimenting with tropicals. I began by rooting cuttings of moms devil's ivy in water, which eventually took over the house. But ma' didn't seem to mind as eventually those cuttings ended up in pots and sold in the greenhouse. I was a 9 year old entrepeneur!

Of course as it goes for most 80s garden kids like myself, I fell in love with the karate kid movies and developed an appetite for bonsai. i've now got an 16 y/o ficus benjamina bonsai and several cascading junipers of equal age chilling out on my unheated back porch.

Lately I still have a passion for tropicals and indoor gardening. I have an obsession with monocots i.e. palms, dracaenas, cordylines, yuccas, and bamboos. I just can't get enough!
