With the colder temps right around the corner, now is the perfect time to add a lovely house plant to your indoor decor. Many studies that proven that the addition of plants and flowers in home environments promote comfort and a sense of calm. Plants can add instant warmth to the most stark and bland rooms. Before you start shopping for the perfect plant to liven up your living room, do a little research.
On a recent trip to our local library, we found a couple of great reference books we highly recommend. The first one is called “Happy Cactus” by Editor John Pilbeam. This little gem is filled with wonderful photos and snippets of valuable information on cacti and succulents. Succulents are one of our shops best selling plants. We receive weekly calls and requests for more information about these easy-going beauties. This book artfully goes over ideal growing conditions, propagation and general caring for a large variety of succulents and cacti. As soon as we read the book, we knew it would make the perfect addition to our reference library.
The book “Plant Society” by Jason Chongue is a gorgeous book, filled with elegant photos and comprehensive information on classic and trendy houseplants. Light conditions are a key for any plant to thrive. We found that this book does a great job of presenting that sort of information as well as interior design tips using plant life. From soil recipes and propagating to trouble-shooting and homemade pesticides. This book is a wonderful addition to any modern plant library.
With internet access, finding information has never been easier, but nothing beats flipping through a beautifully art directed book about wonderful live things that make us smile. Whether you order a copy for yourself or check them out at your local library, start your research and add a lively little green wonder to warm up your home.
