Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This companion volume to botanist Hessayon's best-selling The House Plant Expert adds 66 plants-introduced in the late 1990s and at the beginning of the 21st century-to its A-to-Z listing, bringing the total to more than 350. A color photograph of each plant is included, along with a description, growing requirements, and propagation details. There are also chapters on orchids, bonsai, bromeliads, and herbs that reflect current trends; information on roomscaping covers the use of house plants in interior design, including placement of architectural specimen plants, pot groups, glass gardens, and water gardens. Hessayon wisely addresses frequently encountered problems, e.g., over- or underwatering house plants. In a final chapter, he offers miscellaneous tips, including simple tests for temperature and humidity, a list of fragrant house plants, and how to transplant cacti painlessly. An index to the plants in both volumes is also provided here, with botanical, but no common names, given. Although this book was first published in England, the content is of equal interest to North Americans. For basic, commonsense coverage of house plants, look no further. Recommended for public libraries.-Nancy Myers, Univ. of South Dakota Lib., Vermillion Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Not recommended unless you know the Latin names of your plants

    I was disappointed with this book, expecting it to cover more plants than a book of his that I have from 1984. Now, that was a plant book! This newer book simply does not give you much help for plants undergoing stress, nor enough pictures so that you can locate your particular plant. Just not worth the price - in my opinion.
