There are people with a green thumb that fill their home with gorgeous houseplants that thrive and radiate vitality.

Turns out, I may just be giving them too much of some things and not enough of others.
David Trinklein, horticulture specialist for University of Missouri Extension, is the guest today. He has tips for turning a black thumb, like mine, into a green one.
