From the inside cover:
"Many more plants suitable for growing indoors are available today than even a few years ago. The plant lover who is faced with the ever-increasing range will sometimes hesitate to invest in an attractive but unfamiliar plant, not knowing whether it will suit his conditions or how to look after it. This book, by a team of well-known horticultural experts, tells you how to choose and care for over 1000 plants, more than 500 of which are illustrated in full colour.
A practical introduction covers all aspects of plant growing in the home, conservatory or greenhouse - cultivation, propagation, how to combat pests and diseases, with a special section devoted to cacti and other succulents. This is followed by 96 pages of colour photographs illustrating some of the more decorative and interesting indoor plants;a descriptive dictionary, arranged in alphabetical order with common names fully cross referred, completed the contents."
