Bathrooms, cold rooms, at a desk, on a windowsill, or in a gloomy corner or hot suntrap—there are plants for every location to create your own indoor oasis. If you find that your plant isn’t getting enough sunlight or may need an extra boost, you can use a grow light at home. Understand how much light, water, heat, and humidity your plant needs, whatever your horticulture woes, this book will explain and fix it. Who has kept a dearly departed air plant on a windowsill months after its expiration as a painful reminder of the crime?

With over 50 different types of popular houseplants, this book summarises what type of care your plants do (or don't) need. Anyway, for the most part, this was a fantastic intro into plant care and will hopefully help me keep my new set of plants alive for a good long time.There is not a single reason why you should overfeed a houseplant unless your intentions are on the wicked side. Though plant care can be a doddle to some, it’s best to check the exact needs of your plant and guarantee you mimic their ideal living conditions to allow them to thrive! Instagram plantfluencers aren’t the only ones who can keep monstera and snake plants lush and green. I particularly liked the troubleshooting offered in "The Houseplants"; it explains, for instance, that yellow leaves on one plant might mean it needs more water, while yellow leaves on another species might indicate that it's getting too much sunlight. You learned in school that plants need sunlight to be able to grow big and strong, so you figure that sun drenched heat trap you've got can only be a good thing in the grand scheme of things.

Do you crank the heat in winter and/or blast the AC in summer (and, it bears repeating, is your house haunted)? The first part is a general overview of houseplant care; and the rest is a breakdown of specific houseplants and their needs, including what might be wrong and how to fix it. A good trick is to stick your finger in the top of the soil down to about the second knuckle and feel for any moisture. Suddenly the little blighters were everywhere; in the windows of happening hairdressers, on sale in your local Tesco Metro in snazzy pastel pots, and plastered over greetings cards and novelty mugs accompanied by infuriating cutsie slogans like ‘succ it’ and ‘what the f••culent’ (thank you, Etsy). At Vox, we believe that clarity is power, and that power shouldn’t only be available to those who can afford to pay.Water your plant as usual and you’ll see how any excess water escapes through the drainage holes at the bottom of your pot. From identifying exactly what's in the pot to helping it flourish and grow, this is your guide to creating an oasis of happy, flourishing houseplants.
