About Us

Hello, I’m Dr. Asha Jyoti, a passionate plant tissue culture expert and devoted plant enthusiast. I have done my PhD in plant science (Plant biotechnology) and published detailed papers and book chapters in renowned journals. Working and Observing plants in the laboratory and nurturing them from a tissue level has deeply fascinated me, drawing me into their intricate world of growth development and physiology.

Plantsquery is my endeavor—a plant and issues-focused blog dedicated to providing comprehensive, 100% organic solutions to all plant-related problems and offering guidance on their maintenance and care. Established in 2022, its sole mission is to cater to the diverse needs of indoor and outdoor plant enthusiasts. With 14 years of hands-on experience in working with plants, I possess the expertise to pinpoint issues and offer effective strategies to protect and revitalize struggling plants, ensuring they thrive and flourish.

About Author Dr. Asha Jyoti Bharati (Linkedin)

In addition to my academic and professional proficiency in plants and tissue culture, as well as their growth and physiology, I bring over 8 years of technical expertise in SEO and scientific and food blogging. Over the years, I’ve made significant research contributions, authoring 12 papers and 4 chapters in esteemed global journals, and accumulating a research experience spanning more than 12 years. Presently, I provide consultation services to some of India’s leading plant tissue culture labs, assisting in protocol establishment.

The fusion of my academic and technical knowledge fuels my passion for Plantsquery, a blog that not only aligns with my professional endeavors but also resonates with my love for plants. The opportunity to share my expertise with the world and bridge the gap between science and plant enthusiasts inspires me to pursue both my professional and personal aspirations through this platform.
