Subtitle The Complete Guide to Choosing, Growing, and Caring for Indoor Plants
Transform your home into a verdant retreat with this information-packed guide to houseplant care, with profiles for over 125 different plants.
Well-chosen, well-cared-for houseplants bring life to a room, both literally and figuratively. They add color, texture, motion, uniqueness, beauty—and they even improve air quality. They also fulfill our need to nurture and care for other living things. In Houseplants, expert grower Lisa Eldred Steinkopf gives you the advice and information you need to confidently bring a plant (or two, or more!) home and find joy in keeping it lush and healthy.
Achieve success with your houseplants by:
