Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Darryl Cheng, bestselling author of The New Plant Parent, is back with the first book for indoor gardeners who want to step up from basic plant care to creating rewarding plant collections.

The world of indoor gardening is exploding with desirable new and unusual plants. Thanks to the resources of the internet and social media, finding amazing varieties has never been easier—but knowing how to get maximum enjoyment from this enticing world is not so easy.

In The New Plant Collector, Darryl Cheng brings his knowledge-based approach to the quest, offering collecting suggestions to suit every level of experience, and describing the riches of twenty-two different plant groups, from anthuriums to tillandsias. As always, he focuses on meeting each plant’s requirements for light and moisture, and he provides practical ways to create optimal growing conditions at home. To inspire readers, there are photographs showing the dazzling variety of colors, forms, and patterns that each group offers.

For Cheng, the happy indoor gardener learns to appreciate plants as living things that undergo stages of growth, decline, and rebirth. He teaches the joys of propagation, so that anyone can produce new life from old, increasing and sharing the world’s wealth of beautiful plants.
