With the authors' helpful suggestions you'll be able to select the plants best suited to the light, temperature, and humidity conditions of your house or apartment.
You'll also find a wealth of imaginative and decorative ideas for plant tables, cases, windows, and terrariums. "

" How to care for your houseplants
In nontechnical language and with more than 100 detailed line drawings, the authors describe the general principles of houseplant care and maintenance in a special section (on green paper) designed for quick reference.
You'll find rules of thumb as well as precise instructions for:

  • positioning plants according to light and shade exposures
  • watering plants (and how to determine the pH factor in your tape water)
  • adjusting room temperature and humidity
  • mixing potting composts (and the correct way to repot plants)
  • pruning techniques
  • propagation methods
  • controlling pests and diseases "

" Encyclopedic in its coverage
The Treasury of Houseplants is extraordinary in the number of plants it covers and in the amount of information it gives about each.
Entries are arranged alphabetically, and each is accompanied by a full-color photograph and details on its natural habitat, appearance, species, and care in your home. "

  • a convenient listing of common houseplants by light and temperature requirements
  • detailed instructions for growing houseplants in soilless cultures (nutrient solutions)
  • the proper use of fluorescent light
  • a glossary of commonly used gardening and botanical terms "
