A house is just not a home without a lush selection of plants. Most houseplants don't demand much time or attention, and they can look attractive for years...when treated properly. If you love the idea of showing off a healthy, flourishing indoor garden (like the ones pictured here), then these are the basics you must know for cultivating happy plants. To get the most from them, it's important to understand how similar species live in the wild, and to meet their compost, lighting, humidity, and temperature needs in both winter and summer. There's richly illustrated information on siting and display; containers; propagation from seed, cuttings, and more; watering; feeding and repotting; grooming, and care. Most important of all is making the right choice at the start, and a planter's guide takes your through different types in detail, including ones that flower or have foliage; bulbs; palms, ferns, and bromeliad; and cacti and succulents. Whether your plant is small and potted, trailing and cascading, or floor standing, you'll see how to create a good display and grouping. Plus: all your houseplant problems solved with troubleshooting tips!
