Fischer, Charles C.; Fox, Raymond T.
A carefully selected, well located, and well-cared-for plant is an important item in any d?cor. However, because indoor plants are out of their natural habitats and are confined in containers, optimum growth is difficult. This publication discusses growth requirements, including light intensity, temperature, humidity, watering practices, nutrient and fertilizing practices, potting mixtures, general maintenance, and correcting common problems, to help your plants flourish. A separate sections lists popular plants by light requirements, while another section focuses on decorative uses, including choosing containers for effective display. A final chapter deals with care of flowering plants. Dozens of black and white photographs, a diagnostic table for managing common problems supplement this helpful and informative text.
