Author Will Creed has over 35 years of professional experience caring for and rescuing plants in the homes and offices of regular people like you. Most other sources of indoor plant care are based on experience growing plants in their native habitats or in the carefully controlled environments of greenhouses. Will Creed has answered tens of thousands on individual plant care questions and understands the common misconceptions people have and the common mistakes they make.

This manual will help you understand the differences you face in your home or office and how to adapt your plant care techniques to your real world environment.
