As I grow older my thumb is not quite as black as it once was. If fact it is on the lighter side of grayish-green these days. At one time the only things guaranteed to grow in my home were cactus, violets and air plants. Luckily they come in a variety of colors and species so I always had a riot of color in my home. It was a hard won battle which thanks to the advice of my local florist I won. These beautiful and lovely plants are shown in some absolutely beautiful photographs. There are easy to understand instructions on how to care for these exotic plants. How to care for them if they become infected with either a blight of some kind or insect infestation. An important book for your gardening shelf or if you like looking at colorful pictures that will stimulate the eyes and your desire to own more of these versatile plants.
Well written, beautiful photos. Easy to follow instructions . Extremely informative and helpful. Been looking for something like this forever. Great book.
