You’ll learn all the basics, like understanding light, choosing and buying plants, developing a watering schedule, and replanting properly, as well as your plant parent personality (yes, there’s a quiz!) and how to translate that into your care routines and home design. You’ll also get a primer on the personalities of twenty-six popular houseplants (like monsteras, philodendrons, and succulents) from a diverse range of genuses, grouped by level of care. With fun anecdotes and important tips, this guide also helps more experienced plant parents delve into some advanced plant care—think humidity, misting systems, propagation, and more.
