Deep down inside you’ve always yearned to grow houseplants, right? Who doesn’t want to bask in the calming beauty of something green cohabitating in your home? If only you had a green thumb…
In this illustrated lecture, Tovah Martin urges you to give peace lilies a chance. With the new generation of unkillable houseplants, cohabitating with plants doesn’t have to be high maintenance. Select one of these readily available ironclad plants, and your home is going to be a walk in the park without any stress, mess, or bother. Even if you have less-than-ideal conditions, this lecture provides recommendations for dozens of tough cookies that can survive and thrive despite challenging situations. And there is nothing ho-hum about these houseplants. You will see trendy new versions of beloved workhorses such as sansevierias, nerve plants, Chinese evergreens, begonias, spider plants, ferns, and all your favorites. Plus, creative ideas for fun, funky containers to put pizzazz into your windowsill will be presented. We’ll talk about matching the right plant with your situation and personality; we’ll discuss potting, watering, fertilizer, maintenance, and all your indoor issues. And we’ll tackle mixing and matching indestructibles with a demonstration on how to make it happen. Never kill another houseplant!
