The Indoor Gardener's Companion is a beautifully illustrated encyclopedia of horticultural how-to information, terminology and technology -- page after page filled with helpful line illustrations and featuring a collector's portfolio of houseplant paintings in full color.
A collection of over 150 popular species -- including their indivudual backgrounds, histories and lore, as well as individual care and maintenance requirements -- is a reference section that will be a constant aid. Extensive culture care charts for over 300 plant augment this information and offer fingertip answers to most any plant care query that may arise. The author is a scientist who is able to translate his knowledge and affection for the field into layman's language. Indoor gardening techniques are described and illustrated with clarity and depth, providing a thorough understanding of the roles of light, temperature, water, and fertilizers, the techniques of pruning and grooming, disease and insect control, potting and propagation.
A chapter on specialized uses of houseplants -- how to create terrariums, dish gardens and totems as well as effective uses of hanging baskets, window areas, skylights and indoor greenhouses -- shows interesting and unusual ways to grow plants along with ideas for enhancing living areas with decorative houseplants, and much more.
