9780963176707: The Healthy Indoor Plant: A Guide to Successful Indoor Gardening

Classical teaching in horticulture generally is based on the needs of outdoor or greenhouse plants, an approach not necessarily appropriate to maintaining healthy plants indoors. The groundbreaking information contained in The Healthy Indoor Plant satisfies the need for a volume devoted entirely to indoor ornamental horticulture. This comprehensive, profusely illustrated volume uses a holistic approach to provide accessible information about the healthy management of plants being kept indoors for long periods of time. The authors show how the various aspects of plant care are interrelated. Plant care requires attention to and knowing about the interaction of the plant and its environment and understanding the relation between the plant, its parts, and their functions. Outstanding features: offers clearly written and well organized descriptions; includes chapters on the makeup of a plant and the processes going on within plants; includes encyclopedia of common indoor plants for useful reference; contains a table of conversion factors valuable in many contexts; provides a comprehensive glossary of terms.
