Even the most intrepid outdoor gardeners frequently admit that indoor plants under their care have an
expected lifespan roughly equivalent to that of a mayfly. Whether one has just been given his or her first pot of
grocery-store ivy or has been growing intricate bonsai for years, everything the indoor gardener could ever want to know
about how to select, tend, and enjoy houseplants is contained in Pleasant's monumentally comprehensive yet
straightforward and easy-to-follow encyclopedia covering more than 160 houseplants. Following an enlightening
introduction that discusses the history, uses, and benefits that houseplants bestow, the manual is divided into three
main sections. The first two are plant directories offering in-depth plant profiles of first flowering, then foliage,
houseplants. The third is an extensive compilation of houseplant-care topics, from acclimatization to watering. With
vivid color photographs, precise illustrations, appendixes listing helpful resources, definitions, and a cross-reference
chart of botanical and common names, this is a must-have manual for anyone who shares home or office space with potted
plants. Carol Haggas
