From the Back Cover

Discover Gardening in the Great Indoors

Do you love the idea of having houseplants but find that they tend to die in your care? Have you ever received a gift of a gorgeous flowering pot that you can't identify and have no idea how to keep alive? Or maybe you're already a houseplant enthusiast, ready to expand your knowledge -- as well as your plant collection.

Barbara Pleasant covers these situations and more in her friendly approach to selecting and caring for indoor plants. With personality profiles, growing needs, and troubleshooting tips for 160 blooming and foliage varieties, you'll never kill another houseplant.

Learn about indoor gardening with an inexpensive supermarket plant. Improve your office air quality with a healthy green companion. Immerse yourself in the tropical lushness of ferns and bromeliads. Whatever you're looking for in a houseplant -- a hip flamingo flower, a delicate orchid, or a sturdy Swedish ivy -- you'll find it here.

I have the greatest job in the world, which is helping gardeners find neat ways to make the world a more beautiful and productive place. Writing feature article for Mother Earth News and other magazines helps to break up long stretches spent on books, and it's also great fun to talk with fellow gardeners, who are a constant source of new and better ideas.
