Houseplants for All: How to Fill Any Home with Happy Plants

By Danae Horst

Danae Horst, founder of Los Angeles-based plant boutique Folia Collective, wants to eradicate the myth of the black thumb. With clear instructions and a few questions, she helps you identify your environment profile. Horst created five profiles based on two key ingredients for plant care: light and humidity. Once you’ve pinpointed your profile, she’ll help you find the perfect plants to match your space and lifestyle. For each, Horst presents a selection of plants with detailed care instructions. Finally, she gives essential information suitable for all plants, from choosing a healthy plant in a store to multiplying them.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I can’t say that gardening is my biggest hobby, but my parents have a garden, and sometimes I work there too. But I see that with time, I start enjoying the process more and more, and who knows, maybe in a few years, I’ll be a skilled gardener. But I actually came across this site because I need to write a paper on gardening, so I need to find some info first because my knowledge is not that good. I’ve also found this site, which provides free essay examples, and found two similar to what I have to write. It helped me a little with ideas, but I still need to find other info to make the writing informative. Also, I think that maybe I’ll have time to write a short review of one book on gardening, maybe even of this one.
