This 300-plus page book is filled with useful, technical information presented in a nontechnical manner. Eighty-two foliage species are carefully described, and information is given about habitat, uses, varieties, propagation, culture, nutrition, diseases, insect and mite pests, disorders, tricks, and interior care. Unique to this book are the "pearls of wisdom" scattered throughout, general tips and information -- and the useful "tricks" the author has gleaned through nearly 20 years in the industry.
