An excellent encyclopedia of house plants and their care.
on October 25, 1996
This is the most helpful book on house plants that I have
ever read. It has sections about the different classes of
house plants (eg, flowering, succulents, etc.), followed by
a section that is like an encyclopedia of several hundred
plants. Each plant is presented with its Latin and common
names, a color picture, a brief description, a set of
growing requirements (eg, light, watering), and how to deal
with special problems that species faces. Finally, there
are sections about growing, propagation, and first-aid. I
would recommend this to anyone who enjoys collecting or
growing house plants.
