8 Plant Books to Help You Care for Your Urban Jungle
Whether your a plant daddy or have a brown thumb, learning to live with plants will help bring you a happy, healthy life. In the latest edition of our blog, Flora + Fauna, we profile 8 Plant Books to Help You Care for Your Urban Jungle.
Create Your Urban Jungle
For many plant lovers, an urban jungle helps create a warm and welcoming home that provides an escape from the challenges of our modern world. Plants help reduce stress and make you healthier, too, by absorbing C02 from the air and converting it into oxygen. Plus, the simple task of caring for them will bring you a healthy amount of joy as doing so will help you relax and shake off the stresses of the day.
If you are not ready to invest in an entire book on the subject, you can read our selection of blogs on houseplant selection and care. In our blog post, 14 Popular Houseplants and How to Keep them Alive, we profile the most popular houseplants and how to care for them. Or you may want to read this article from Better Homes and Gardens, which offers their top picks.
And even if you kill every plant you touch, houseplants (and books about houseplants) make popular gifts.
