Over theMoreHouse plants date back to ancient Rome and ancient Greece when citizens kept exotic plants inside their homes. These exotic plants never wouldve survived outside, but inside they found a similar environment to their natural habitat. Over the centuries, botanists have crossbred house plants to become even more hardy and disease-resistant, expanding our idea of house plants. Baskets, bird feeders, boots, dishes, glassware, hanging baskets, pallets, pots, teapots, teacups, washtubs, watering cans, and window boxes are just a few of the containers you can plant with house plants. House Plants is a guide to choosing and growing house plants of many varieties including bonsai plants, bromeliads, cacti and succulents, ferns, palms, philodendrons, tropical plants, and vines. Included is an A-Z Picture Guide with over 130 species of house plants as well as a chapter on invasive species.
