About Me

Welcome to the website of plantician.com!

My name’s Mike and I’m a self-registered Plantician. I know you’re wondering what that is so let me explain.

I’ve always had an interest in vegetation, micro-organism, flora, landscapes, and anything to do with plant life. In high school, I loved Biology and topped 2% of NSW (Australia) for the final exams back in 2004.

These days, with the current pandemic, the rising cost of living, and just being at home in general, I find myself more time tendering houseplants and backyard gardening. And this has sparked a passion for cultivating, planting, and homesteading.

To further my knowledge, I’m looking at completing the Certificate II in Horticulture; to write better articles for the benefit of my audience. So while I’m not a practicing horticulturist by profession, I would describe myself as a subject matter expert in gardening, hence holding the job title of a “Plantician”. And you can become one too!

My short-term goal is to create a library of resources for passionate gardeners to maintain their best backyard, plant, and home vegetation. The vision is to create free resources for plant beginners to grow their own green life at home.

If you’re a passionate gardener and would like to collaborate with me in some way, I’d love to hear from you! Pop me a message to plantician at gmail.com.

Thanks for visiting.
