Houseplants and How to Grow Them: Easy Tips to Grow Healthy, Beautiful PlantsHouseplants can be a challenge when you have poor conditions (poor lighting, freezing windows in winter, humidity levels that match the Sahara Desert’s, destructive toddlers, cats that use flowerpots as a litter box, etc.) This book goes through a few simple tips for caring for and raising houseplants, things I've learned through the years as I worked at various garden centers, greenhouses, and when I ran my own greenhouse as city horticulturist. I hope that when you get done reading, you should be able to take care of your own plants a little more easily.This houseplants book was partly inspired by all the houseplant books I read at my grandma's house. She always had a good collection of houseplant books that I especially enjoyed. Both of my grandmothers had nice indoor gardens, including a sprightly collection of African violets, a shrimp plant, various succulents, begonias galore, fuschias, and many other flowering plants. I used to buy small plants and would populate various terrariums with them.
This book will help you grow a fine indoor garden. Follow simple tips that will help you keep from overwatering your plants, grow them in low humidity, fit the plant to the right place, and show you how to keep them blooming. This book also gives you propagation tips and even explains how to make a dish garden.
