Well-Clad Windowsills: Houseplants for Four Exposures
MacMillan Publishing Company
I wish there were more good houseplant books.
This is an excellent book! This book isn't for the person who wants a short, general discription of the comon houseplant. This book has about 40 plant families. It give the history, growth habits, growing instructions that are far beyond the general information found in most houseplant books. Some of the plants are readily available, some are available in nurseries or greenhouse and a few may ...

37 Houseplants Even You Can't Kill
Mary Kate Hogan
Simple and to-the-point
The reason I like this book is because it gives me just what I want to know, no more, no less. So many books on houseplants go overboard with information and it just gets overwhelming to read through all that stuff. If I could change one thing, I would give two pictures of each plant instead of one: one close up and one further away, to give a better idea of what the plant really looks like if ...

Forcing, etc The Gardener's Guide to Bringing Bulbs Branches & Houseplants into Bloom
Could not put it down!
I received this book this afternoon and could not put it down! If I hadn't had to cook dinner and spend time with my hubby I would have had it finished already! I didn't know much about forcing bulbs or any other plants and I couldn't find the information that I really wanted online. This book has it! I am so excited that I cannot wait for fall and it is only March 12th! It is an easy read ...

First off, this book is very colorful full of interesting and lively photos of many different species of houseplants. Just like with ...

Get your green thumb here!
Of all the plant books I own, and that's a lot, this is the one I find myself refering to constantly. The Houseplant Encyclopedia is easy to read, and has a humorous tone to it at times. This book was the one that finally showed me the RIGHT way to propagate a Snake Plant. (HINT: The cuttings have to be stuck in a certain direction in the soil or nothing will happen.) (...) You'll find yourself ...

this book has a good basic overall view of many plants for the indoors. My fave part was how the plants are divided according to the room conditions. For example "Easy Plants for Cool Room" Easy Plants for Warm Room" etc. I use this book everytime I add a new plant to my house. AWESOME!
