Based on his obsession of trying to squeeze in just one more plant in tight quarters, Art Scarpa has accumulated a large collection of unusual miniature plants from around the world for both indoors and outdoors. Audiences are fascinated with these tiny treasures, some of which are mature blooming plants in 1" pots or tiny terrarium.rt Scarpa has been growing unusual plants all his life and his hobby greenhouse is filled to the eaves with plants that reflect his diverse interests. His curiosity has taken him to many exciting places to view them in their natural habitats, such as the US south and southwest, Hawaii, Europe, Australia, South America and South Africa. Now retired, Art is busier than ever, sharing his experiences and horticultural knowledge with others at flower shows, arboreta, garden clubs and fairs all over the northeast.
