|"I'm a big fans of tropical plants and I have loved growing them in my home in SC since my first visit to Hawai`i several years ago. Most of the plants I grow are transplanted Hawaiian plants or cuttings from the islands.
I grow small and large Monstera deliciosa (my favorite), Green and Red Ti Plants, several Alocasia and Colocasia, White Birds of Paradise, Traveler's Palms (ravenala madagascariensis), Christmas Palms (Veitchia merrillii), several types of Banana, Plumeria, several Ginger's, Heliconias, lots of Pothos, Peace Lily's, and regular Birds of Paradise to name a few.
I am especially fond of monstera's and my extensive Ti collection. I now have plants from Kaua`i, Maui, and the Big Island growing at home.
Professionally I work as the Director of Web Content for the SC Education Television Commission and I also founded a Hawaii media and tourism website. I have a BS in Geography, with a focus on Climatology, from the University of SC."
