A fun, gifty guide to growing and caring for the top 50 houseplants

Houseplants are more popular than ever: as expert writer and gardening enthusiast Heather Rodino notes, "plants have demonstrated therapeutic value, clean the air, and are an affordable way of decorating, adding beauty to your home, and making even the smallest rented space feel like your own." She offers a lighthearted, colorfully illustrated overview of caring for your indoor garden, profiling 50 of the most popular houseplants, from the Boston fern and the fiddle-leaf fig to the moth orchid. Her accessible advice on handling pests and diseases, troubleshooting problems, and assessing your growing conditions, will give novices the confidence they need to begin nurturing their own collection. Tips and list detail everything from which plants are pet-friendly to the top five plants for frequent travelers.
