It's time for plant lovers to dust off their houseplants, update their image, and discover just how exciting, trendy, and crucial plants can be in the home. The Unexpected Houseplant, by renowned plant authority Tovah Martin, isn't your typical, old-fashioned, dowdy houseplant book. Martin's approach is revolutionary—picture brilliant spring bulbs by the bed, lush perennials brought in from the garden, quirky succulents in the kitchen, even flowering vines and small trees growing beside an easy chair. Martin brings an evangelist's zeal to the task of convincing homeowners that indoor plants aren't just a luxury—they're a necessity. In addition to design flair, houseplants clean indoor air, which can be up to ten times more polluted. Along with loads of visual inspiration, readers will learn how to make unusual selections, where to best position plants in the home, and valuable tips on watering, feeding, grooming, pruning, and troubleshooting, season by season.

This beautifully illustrated guide to these striking yet simple plants “offers fresh possibilities” for home decor and more (Publishers Weekly). The incredible thing about tillandsias—a.k.a. air plants—is that they don’t need soil. That means you can dangle or perch these easy-care plants almost anywhere. In this gorgeously photographed volume, artist and horticulturist Zenaida Sengo explores the creative design and décor possibilities of these curious plants. Air Plants offers a comprehensive introduction to tillandsias, explaining their unique qualities and easy care techniques. It also showcases creative ideas for displaying tillandsias—from unique containers, like dishware, leather bowls, and baskets to mounting them on walls and suspending from the ceiling. Six step-by-step projects include a wood mount, a wall hook, lasso-and-hook wiring, a ceramic-frame garden, and three unique terrariums. Sengo even shares ideas for living hair accessories and jewelry!
