This is a kindle book I published myself to try and encourage people new or lacking experience of growing indoors to choose house plants based on growing conditions of their homes, and not just buying a plant based on attraction primarily. There are suggestions for plants that are easy to grow for the beginner and information about the basics of caring within the book.

Format: Kindle - Paperback Complete Houseplant Survival Manual

The complete houseplant survival guide provides detailed information about various types of plants and certain species. Barbara has a nice gentle tone to her writing which seems to go well for a house plant growers book. It's one of the most expensive books I have bought, however, I did learn to look at caring requirements for certain species in another way and found it a useful manual.

Some books will cover herbs while others will cover veg to be grown indoors but this covers both subjects.
