Unlike most plant books that simply list plants and pictures and treats each as a separate entity without any logical connection to general plant care, at last comes a 'how to' with a commonsense empahsis. Well written and fascinating book that addresses the basic care of ANY plant. General, logical and easy to remember information is given in entertaining but informative fashion. Learn how NOT to do the most common thing that people do to kill plants--OVERwater them. Filled with pearls about how to tell when plants need watering, potting etc. Dispels myths propagated by the fetilizer industry. A must for anyone who has compassion but ignorance about houseplants!
