My name is Samantha. I would define myself as a beginner when it comes to understanding plants. I enjoy admiring plants, I have many house plants, and during the summer I enjoy growing various flowers, herbs, and some type of produce. This year I have covered my deck in potted plants which I am excited about. Some of my favorite types of plants are mosses, dandelions, and black spruce. I look forward to learning more about plants and specifically Alaska plants. For a microscope I ordered this desktop microscope: https://www.newegg.com/p/079-01JA-00002?Item=9SIA4RE7CT2891 and this phone accessory: https://www.newegg.com/p/0GR-00PB-00001?Item=9SIAMYCBR80078. I hope to have them both by the end of this week.
