Publisher's Summary

Your guide to growing big, beautiful, thriving houseplants, whether you’re an expert gardener or self-described brown thumb. 

Houseplants bring life into the home, literally. They produce oxygen and refresh the air indoors, they liven up small spaces, and they make the perfect companions, since they don’t demand much more than a sunny window and some water. Of course, for those who have never grown houseplants before, the mere idea of bringing one inside conjures up all sorts of questions and concerns. Don’t different plants need different amounts of light? How much water is too much? If I have kids or pets, which plants should I avoid? Relax! Growing plants is supposed to be a joy-filled activity, so before you let all your concerns come pouring out, consult Houseplants 101.

Written with beginners and experienced gardeners alike in mind, this book covers everything from picking the right plants for your space to making them fit right in with decorative pots and hanging baskets. Experience the emotional and psychological benefits of keeping houseplants, which have been shown to reduce feelings of depression and provide an outlet to those with anxiety. Your small corner of the world will grow a bit greener when you learn about the best indoor plants for all types of caretakers, why succulents are so popular, and how to make your plants not only happy and lush, but also stylish. In addition, you’ll discover: 

  • Which houseplants are the hardest to kill (perfect for those who do not consider themselves to have green fingers yet!) 
  • How to ensure your plants get adequate light 
  • Why repotting is an important step in the growth cycle of a plant 
  • High-maintenance plants for the more adventurous indoor gardeners
  • The best plants for every type of home, from those that have an abundance of sunlight to the ones that are darker than a cave 

And much, much more! 

As a bonus, you’ll even find a growing guide for edible plants that you can keep inside all year round!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Recommendation

I like that audiobook gives you the basics on foliage plants I don't like that it does not list all the foliage plants. Overall it’s a good audiobook. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is new to having house plants.

It was so informative!

I highly recommend this audiobook, nice color illustrations with accompanying texts listing all the various household chemicals we come in contact in our domicile. I'm glad I purchased this audiobook; I even gave one as a gift because it was so informative.

Beneficial to me!

I adore indoor plants, but I've done some very heinous things to them. I didn't know anything about soils, humidity, or pests, so I gave them too much or too little sun, too much or too little water. This audiobook has been beneficial to me!

Not worth the time or money

This audiobook is dreadfully boring, scant in useful information, poorly organised and badly read. It also betrays the author’s shallow knowledge of plants: he often contents himself with giving us the common names of plants while acknowledging that they are unreliable and confusing. As it to prove his point, he lists Asparagus cetaceus amongst the ferns without pointing out the crucial fact that this plant is not a fern.
Etc etc

Aesthetically stunning and well-organized

The most useful audiobook I've ever heard, aesthetically stunning and well-organized. You can easily locate the most popular houseplants and learn how to care for them.
