Hi my name is Toby Mcdowall, I have a b-tech\degree in horticulture. I am 34 years old and have been professionally and personally collecting and growing rare plants for 16 years you name it orchids, carnivorous plants, odd smelling plants, tillandsia (air plant species), succulents, rare fynbos bulbs etc. I garden for life and have worked also as a landscaper domestic and civil such as the landscaping done before the soccer world cup in Seapoint Cape Town. I currently live in Woodstock Cape Town and have bought a house that has little space for gardening or plant collections however I came to a solution to get my plant growing fix, yes aquascaping a new type of landscaping\ gardening for me and I think I am addicted. Having a diverse knowledge in botany and horticulture, I take my aquascaping seriously and have learned a lot on the topic in a short time. My setups are high tech and have a passion for nano sized tanks my speciality. Being a bonafide man of science and research I joined this forum to learn as much as possible and connect with other aquascapers. I would like to establish a network of friends that share the same passion.
