From the authors of What’s Wrong With My Plant? and What’s Wrong With My Vegetable Garden?, this book applies a similar organic approach to growing indoors, examining the conditions plants need to thrive and how to identify and treat problems when they occur.
To help you create the ideal growing environment for all your houseplants, it begins by analyzing factors influencing their health: water, light, temperature, humidity and fertilizer, as well as the pot or planting container. The bulk of the book gives profiles of 148 common houseplants, including palms, trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials, vines, ferns, orchids, cacti and succulents, outlining the main considerations for growing each.
The final section helps diagnose problems, from improper sunlight and watering to pests such as mites and aphids, with full-colour photos showing symptoms and suggestions for organic remedies.
