Hi Cynthia,

No apology necessary. I have had bad days and gotten frustrated when people did not follow through as expected. And I have used language far worse than yours. I understood your frustration from the outset, so your comment did not surprise me, let alone shock me.

Now you know where to go with your indoor plant questions in the future. Feel free to email me directly, if you prefer. If you ask too many questions or questions for which I don't know the answers, I will tell you, but I won't ignore you.

Best regards,

~Will Creed
