Description

Transform your home into a verdant retreat with this information-packed guide to houseplant care, with profiles for over 125 different plants.

Well-chosen, well-cared-for houseplants bring life to a room, both literally and figuratively. They add color, texture, motion, uniqueness, beauty—and they even improve air quality. They also fulfill our need to nurture and care for other living things. In Houseplants, expert grower Lisa Eldred Steinkopf gives you the advice and information you need to confidently bring a plant (or two, or more!) home and find joy in keeping it lush and healthy.

Achieve success with your houseplants by:
  • Making smart selections: Choose plants that are suited for your space and conditions.
  • Savvy siting: Where the plant is placed is as important as what it is.
  • Taking care: Proper maintenance goes far beyond watering; learn how to fertilize, groom, troubleshoot, propagate, and more.
  • Becoming an educated owner: The book includes 125+ profiles of the most popular, cutting-edge plant species.
Organized by relative ease of care, the plant profiles offer the common and botanical names, light preference, watering guidelines, whether and under what conditions it flowers, its size and growth potential, propagation tips, and available cultivars.

Featuring stunning photography and a modern design, Houseplants is a must-have resource for every houseplant parent.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet

During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
