Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Houseplants are one of the most enduring members of any household, providing a much needed addition of color, fresh oxygen, and character to any room. They can add a boost to your mood, the quality of air in your home, and the feeling you get when you return from a long day of work. For single people, they add a sense of responsibility to a home, especially for those without pets, and for families, they are a fun way to teach children responsibility. But every houseplant needs a different amount of care, including water, food, and sunlight. Some plants, with too much light or too little water, will simply die without warning. To combat this, you need a complete guide to understanding what keeps some plants alive.

This book was written to provide all plant owners and potential owners the needed steps to keeping their beloved green friends alive, no matter how finicky they can be. In this guide, you will learn all of the basics of houseplant care, starting with a thorough explanation and glossary of terms that are used to describe different plants and how they grow. You will learn what makes a houseplant different from other plants and how much water, sunlight, and food each plant needs to truly stay alive. Their specific needs are even more broken down by showing you all of the various houseplants known in existence and a guide for each type of houseplant with specific care instructions for how they best thrive in a myriad of conditions. Top houseplant experts and gardeners have contributed their insight through various interviews to further the knowledge you can gain from this book and to help you overcome particularly finicky houseplants, finding the right location in the home, avoiding meddling pests and pets, and making sure some unknown contagion is not interfering with the growth of your plants. This book, for anyone who has ever wanted to add a little green to their home, is the perfect path to understanding and keeping alive your favorite houseplants.<\p>
