|"Currently finishing my undergrad in Plant Science and have been an avid gardener since I was a kid.
My lab experience includes plant tissue culture, plant chromosome preparation, fluorescent in situ hybridization of plant chromosomes, and plant breeding/selection. I have worked shortly with plant pathogen isolation and identification.
I am experienced with plant propagation, disease diagnosis, and can perform plant identification using a key.
Practical growing experience includes carnivorous plants (Pinguicula, Nepenthes, and Drosera), orchids (particularly Oncidium alliance), and tropicals. I try to introduce ornamental species that are common in East Asia to hobbyist growers here. These species are primarily grown for the scent more-so than their flowers: Aglaia odorata, Jasminum sambac, Coix lacryma-jobi, to name a few. I am always looking to try growing unusual/lesser known species from seed. "
