Hello!

I'm a high school plant nerd who enjoys travelling to parks across Ohio to find cool native plants. Some of my favorite natives I've seen in situ are Larix laricina (profile photo, at J. Arthur Herrick Fen), Drosera rotundifolia, Opuntia cespitosa, Conopholis americana, Symplocarpus foetidus, Platanus occidentalis, Fagus grandifolia, Tsuga canadensis, Lupinus perennis, Aletris farinosa, and Kalmia latifolia. I'm also passionate about conservation and ecology, and want to help protect other organisms from annihilation by humans. I strongly believe in planting natives to support local wildlife, so this summer I am going to establish a native habitat garden as well. Go native!

Indoors, I love cultivating and researching succulents and other xerophytes from across the globe, and also to a lesser extent grow orchids, aroids, ferns, and carnivorous plants. Someday I hope to travel around the world to see some of these amazing plants in the wild, and I especially want to visit South Africa, Borneo, Madagascar, Chile, Socotra, and Mexico.

My current mission on iNat is identifying the weedy invasive members of Kalanchoe subg. Bryophyllum for more accurate invasive plant documentation. I can communicate in English or Spanish, but English is my first language. Feel free to @ me if you want me to/think I could identify anything.

Top 5 Favorite Native Trees:

  1. Platanus occidentalis (American Sycamore)
  2. Larix laricina (Tamarack)
  3. Tsuga canadensis (Eastern Hemlock)
  4. Fagus grandifolia (American Beech)
  5. Juniperus virginiana (Eastern Redcedar)
