Description

Pick your container, fill it with water, and sit back and watch your plant grow--now in full color!
Hydroponics for Houseplants is the answer to anyone who has ever shied away from growing house plants because of messy dirt or fear of things dying if left for a few days without water. Ditch the hassle and learn how to grow plants indoors with nothing but water.
Peter Loewer, an inveterate inventor of water gardening techniques, has written and illustrated this charming guide to teach readers the basics of hydroculture. This technique of growing plants in water has a history of almost 300 years, from experiments by an English botanist to the giant automated factory greenhouses of the twentieth century where vegetables are now grown commercially by the ton. Learn how to utilize this simple, time-tested method in your own home and never worry about over- or under-watering again!
In this new repackaged edition, readers will learn about the incredible number of plant varieties (over 150!) that can actually live in water--whether sitting on a windowsill, decorating a wall, or flourishing under artificial light. Bring life into your home with plants such as lilies of the valley, hyacinths, English ivy, philodendrons, oleanders, and umbrella plants. In addition to this, Loewer provides basic knowledge on holdfasts, charcoal, colored glass versus clear, the addition of nutrients, and suggestions on a variety of decorating schemes that are accessible to even a novice indoor water gardener.
