Do You Want Beautiful Houseplants?

Even if you don’t have a “green thumb” yet, you can still have the houseplants of your dreams

Dear Houseplant Lover,

Hi, my name is Raffaele Di Lallo and I’m the founder of, a site that has tens of thousands of readers in 150+ countries, and am on Instagram (@ohiotropics) where over 100,000 people follow me to see helpful tips and advice on keeping houseplants.

I just love sharing with others how they can enjoy the benefits of a house full of plants, but lately it has been getting more challenging replying to all the messages online…That’s why I’m introducing a Houseplant Consultation service. We can hop on a call (phone or via Skype) and discuss anything and everything related to your specific questions and challenges so you can have the houseplants of your dreams!

Keeping houseplants is one of the most rewarding activities you can have. They make your home more beautiful, serves as a relaxing hobby, and it can even improve your health.

But sometimes it’s not so easy, especially when you come up against problems and pests that aren’t mentioned on the little label in the pot.

If you’ve been having challenges, don’t worry! Most problems can be solved by asking a few simple questions and a little detective work (on my part).

You’ll be surprised how quickly we can diagnose and treat even the most pesky problems that come with keeping plants indoors:

  • Infestation of gnats, spider mites or any other kind of pest… No need to share your house with unwanted guests!
  • Need to know the best way to propagate a new plant, repot, or just how to breathe new life into your plants? We can discuss this and more so you get the most out of your indoor garden
  • You’ve been following the instructions that came with your houseplants perfectly, but something is wrong and your plants look sad
  • You’re scared of owning the houseplants of your dreams because they’re expensive, intimidating, and you don’t want to see them wither up and die
  • Not sure and overwhelmed with all the inaccurate and confusing information out there about taking care of plants

The tips on watering, choosing which pot to use, and how much light the plants want have helped them to thrive in my home, but behind all of that is an obvious passion for plants that he is more than happy to share with others.” – Will in London, UK

“Not only do I have a black thumb, but I travel frequently and have a cat. I didn’t think it was possible to grow anything in my house. Raffaele helped me to understand that orchids are not intimidating. In fact, they are quite robust and require very little attention. I would highly recommend his advice. If I can get an orchid to re-bloom, you can too!” – Meredith in Ohio.
