|This is the perfect book for that person who does not have a green thumb but still tries to grow plants. You now have the perfect guide on which plants are better for indoors and which are better for outdoors. The author also explains watering, and which plants can be in full sun and which need to be in partial. Just because most are part of the cactus family, not all are good in full sun, why spend the money and watch your plant die. Now you are given a helpful guide in choosing the right cactus for you and once it takes off the author has also given an area in the book for showing the reader on how to separate the plants once they take off without killing them. This book, of course, is not for everyone some people will think they don’t need it, but just how the Aloe Vera cactus has many different varieties there is one that is for healing and you can see the picture of that so when you go to the store to buy one you know you are getting the right one. That is just one example. Overall a very good book with excellent photos and descriptions of every plant. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave this book 5 stars.
