About Darryl Cheng

Why Join My Patreon?
Trying to find info online never really answers the question: "What am I doing wrong?"  because there's no way for you to tell the internet your specific growing conditions and past actions with that plant.

Asking random people might get you a bit further, but they'll probably just recycle the same old lines like "maybe you're overwatering" and "try raising the humidity" - which will continue the cycle of confusion.

Joining my Patreon allows me to give you my fullest attention and analysis!  I want to help you enjoy houseplant care for the long-run!

Membership in my Patreon has several amazing benefits:
  • ***NEW*** Monthly Zoom meeting where you can ask me questions face-to-face!
  • Houseplant diagnostics and recommendations from me - ask as many questions as you want in the Community Section
  • You can read my past analyses/recommendations - you'll learn and probably be comforted by seeing the problems others have faced - you're not alone!
  • I occasionally post articles that are helpful (or even point out unhelpful ones and why)
  • You will develop the right mindset to enjoy plant ownership for years to come

The Plant Advisor:
I never really liked the term "plant doctor" because it tends to convey that everything can be fixed and restored to perfection - which is unrealistic (and no one actually tells you this).  That's why I prefer to think of myself as a "plant advisor" - I'm looking out for your long-term enjoyment of houseplants by conveying realistic expectations and recommendations (and not afraid to give bad news).

A Must-Read Book:
Whether you are new to plant parenthood or have been dabbling with houseplants for years, you will benefit from reading my book 'The New Plant Parent'. If you follow traditional houseplant advice, you'll be left with disappointment because your plant is no longer "perfect". My book breaks down the barriers to true, long-lasting enjoyment of houseplants - when you understand how plants work, you can gain a deeper appreciation for their character and resourcefulness.
