Offering a new way to grow healthy house plants, this book teaches the art of understanding a plant's needs and giving it a home with the right balance of light, water and nutrients.
For indoor gardeners everywhere, Darryl Cheng offers a new way to grow healthy house plants. After reading Cheng, we felt reassured to transform from the passive follower of rules and much more the confident, active growers, relying on observation and insight. This is a great book for anyone who already is, or longs to be, a plant lover, bonded to these beautiful living things by a simple love and appreciation of nature. The House Plant Journal Handbook covers all of the basics of growing house plants, from finding the right light, to everyday care like watering and fertilizing, to containers, to recommended species. Cheng’s friendly tone, personal stories, and accessible photographs fill his book with the same generous spirit that has made @houseplantjournal, his Instagram account, a popular source of advice and inspiration for thousands of indoor gardeners.
