Attention friends who keep killing their plants!
I found a really good book that I think will help!
It's really easy to follow and has a wide variety of plants:
You can basically find the plant listed that looks most like the plant you have, and go to the page listed under it. And it'll say how to care for it!
Here's an example ^ not only does it say what lighting and watering it needs like most books, but it also lists the different things that can go wrong with this plant and which make us think it's dying. Like wilting being too much water, edges crisping being not enough misting, what sunburn on this plant looks like, etc.
A common mistake people make that kills plants is too much water or not enough water, it can be tricky until you get used to your plant's needs! This explains watering techniques really well.
And a bunch of other stuff it shows you, like buying the best plant for your environment, repotting them, feeding them, all sorts of things!
It's definitely a new favorite 😌
