About the Author:
I have been fascinated with indoor gardening for more than 20 years. In the early 1980s there was little information on the subject, so I started to do research. I made hundreds of phone calls and visited countless nurseries. Soon I started writing articles in the Organic Gardening, Houseplant, and the Growing Edge Magazine. The research progressed into the Gardening Indoors Series – NEW REVISED GARDENING INDOORS, GARDENING INDOORS WITH CO2, GARDENING INDOORS WITH CUTTINGS, GARDENING INDOORS WITH HID LIGHTS, GARDENING INDOORS WITH ROCKWOOL. This is the only series of books that deals with indoor gardening and High-Intensity Discharge lighting. The series has helped hundreds of thousands of indoor gardeners enjoy exotic flowers and vegetables grown indoors.
