We've all killed houseplants. But a plant's death is a good starting point, because it can help us answer the important question: Why did it die? Equipped with the right knowledge, you can make plants thrive for many years. How Not to Kill Your Houseplants is the first-ever comprehensive guide on how to care for houseplants in the Indian context. In this book, you will learn how to choose the right plants for your space and lifestyle, the right light requirements, when and how to water and fertilize them, the best potting mixes, and how to propagate plants.
With simple and effective advice, and seventy houseplant profiles, accompanied by stunning pictures, plant parenting has never been easier.
Plants are our direct link to nature and the spiritual world. The author guides us through the magical world of houseplants, with simple suggestions for their protection, maintenance and propagation. Plants relieve stress and
provide clean air, ensuring a life of tranquility and harmony as envisaged by our ancient sages. This book is a welcome response to the urgent need to integrate nature into our lives.
Trisha grew up at a tea estate in Assam, "submerged in nature". It is her true love for plants and flowers that has led her to write this very informative book, focused on how to love and care for seventy houseplants. She reminds
us that caring for plants and flowers is a living experience of "oneness with nature". We learn from her rich experience. It is well worth reading and keeping as a reference guide. Lord Buddha once said, "If we could see the
miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." The quote accentuates the fact that if we imbibe these lessons from plants and their flowers, it would bring a phenomenal change in our lives. Add a plant to
your life. Your life will change forever.
