Synopsis: Aimed at a new generation of indoor gardening enthusiasts, this book is a perfect guide for anyone keen to see their plant offspring thrive. Gaining ground on food and pet photos on social media, plants have found popularity in the small home, and are being proclaimed the new stars of Instagram. This beautiful little book is ideal for the novice ‘plant parent’, providing tips on how to choose plants, where to place them, and above all how to care for them and keep them thriving. Indoor-plant experts and Instagrammers Erin Harding and Morgan Doane bring the subject to life alongside their beautiful photographs of happy plants in the home.
Throughout the last couple of years, I developed a love for architecture and interior design. I love to look at interiors on instagram and oh yes do I have a pinterest board on house interior. Through the interiors I ended up at plants. Some rooms are full of them. Plants are popular and they look beautiful. I’ve been trying to create my own jungle in my house, plant by plant, working on my ability not to let everything wither and die. So I thought this book was perfect to gain some knowledge on taking care of my plants.
I found this book very basic. A lot of the information in this book is known to almost everyone, if you have or haven’t plant experience. That’s why I believe this is a book for someone who doesn’t know anything about plants and how to take care of them. It would be a cute gift for a friend. Though I think the authors could have considered putting in more than the most basic plant knowledge. In the end the amount of knowledge I got through this book was little to none.
Besides the information, there’s the pictures. Lots and lots of cute plant pictures that made me excited to get more plants. It provides some inspiration for my next plants and adorable ways to display them. Though I still get most of my inspiration on other platforms.
I gave this book 3/5 stars.
