"In award-winning horticulturalists Fran Bailey's lovely guide, you'll learn how to care for houseplants and how they can care for you. Each themed chapter identifies the specific benefits of the plants that are profiled. Some bring a relaxing, restful ambience to a room, while others can help clean the air. Bailey also describes the individual characteristics of the plants and covers their needs, from light to watering recommendations. At the end of the book, she explains how to choose plants and keep them healthy, propagation techniques, and more."
