What is Orrinia?
Derived from the name “Orrin,” meaning “little green one,” Orrinia is your home to learn about the little green creatures that sit on your windowsill.
Orrinia is an educational archive/blog dedicated to helping houseplant owners understand more about their plants. We found that scientific information on houseplants was not available, and if it was, it was incredibly difficult to digest.
So we created Orrinia. We are currently a work in progress, but we intend to collect and archive as much scientific information on common and rare plants as possible. This includes the botany, history, and rarity of these plants.
We seek to help fill a gap in the plant community, where there are currently sites that just repeat commonly heard care tips; we plan to test these theories, ask experts and teach plant parents how to understand the biology of their plants.
