Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent resource! I love caring for houseplants and consider myself to have pretty green thumbs. There are a few plants that I just couldn't figure out though. I bought this book hoping to find clear and concise information about basic care and tips for troubleshooting common issues. Well, it has surpassed my expectations! A vast amount of plants are covered and those with similar care requirements are also referenced. It has quickly become a go-to reference for me when issues arise. A great resource for the beginner and experienced gardener alike!
