So you want to decorate every nook and cranny in every room of your home with foliage or flowers. Maybe you just want to take care of the dish garden, African violet, or green, leafy thing that used to have flowers. You got a plant for your anniversary, for Mother's Day or from the funeral and don't know what to do with it. I can help. Can you think of any other activity you can do, in any weather, twelve months a year, at any age, regardless of physical limitation, whether you live alone or with someone? Can you name any other living thing that has been proven, both medically and scientifically, to enhance your surroundings, decrease blood pressure and stress, while cleaning the very air you breathe? Whether you want to recreate the Puerto Rican rainforest in your living room or just add a few accents to spice up your decor, houseplants can do it all. You could move your teenager to the garage so you can use his bedroom as a greenhouse, and that might not be a bad idea. Transforming the second bathroom into your very own seed-starting hothouse is probably out of the question, but adding bloomin' color to the dining room table or a topiary to the buffet is a great first step that can lead to who knows where. You say you've always wanted an orchid? You'll find that they are not as difficult and mysterious as you thought. Yes, even you can raise an orchid! So how can houseplants create this wonderful environment in your home? It is both cheap and easy. You just need to know how, and that is what this book is all about."
