An award-winning garden writer explains how to nurture houseplants so that they serve their body/mind/spirit healing roles. Pleasant provides general care tips and specifics summarized in tables for plants from abutilon to Zebrinain. An icon identifies low-maintenance plants, but a section also covers "beginner" orchids. The guide includes a glossary, North American resources, and a botanical/common name cross reference.
