I will be the first to admit I'm not very good with houseplants. I love books which feature characters who are experts at gardening or those with botanical gardens featured as a main setting. It would be lovely to have my mother's green thumb but it must have skipped my generation, however, I am determined to keep our gifted peace lily alive!
This book seemed to have some answers as it explains how to care for houseplants, over 200 profiles and project tips as well. You find your plant profile and there is an explanation for care, how much light it needs to receive, the potting soil needed for transplant and more.
The chapters feature succulents, ferns, carnivorous plants, bulbs, trailing plants and explain which ones can be caustic to handle and how much humidity each needs. It's a well of info and perfect for those trying to learn about plants as well as a guide for those who are knowledgeable.
