Plants Are My Favourite People
A Relationship Guide for Plants and Their Parents
Plant Parent (n.)- Any person who has ever cared for or dreamed about caring for at least one plant.
Whether you are an aspiring plant parent or already care for a junglelike brood, plant-stagram influencer Alessia Resta has distilled everything you need to know to start and grow your collection in this plant-care bible.
You'll learn all the basics, like understanding light, choosing and buying plants, developing a watering schedule, and replanting properly, as well as your plant parent personality (yes, there's a quiz!) and how to translate that into your care routines and home design. You'll also get a primer on the personalities of twenty-six popular houseplants (like monsteras, philodendrons, and succulents) from a diverse range of genuses, grouped by level of care.
With fun anecdotes and important tips, this guide also helps more experienced plant parents delve into some advanced plant care-think humidity, misting systems, propagation, and more. Whether you just bought your first plant baby, have a collection that's overtaking your home, or fall somewhere in between, you are a plant parent.
