Outside In                                  

  My hobby for many years is growing plants indoors during the winter  season and a plant collector of Tropicals, Succulents, Dwarf Trees,  and Vines.  I also enjoy outdoor gardening during the summer season.  I created this site to share the knowledge and to gain more knowledge from others too.  I have an album of my entire collection on the menu bar.  If you have any comments or questions I do welcome it.   In a short while I will be changing the name of this website,  I had used it for my former hobby of art work. 

Under Indoor Greenhouse menu I explain how to convert an area in your house into an indoor greenhouse,  everything you will need to start your own hobby of growing indoor plants.  All the plants listed in the menus can be grown indoors.
