really liked it

I started getting into indoor gardening about two months ago, and I find this book helpful for new plant "parent" like me - I liked his way of writing which was simple and straight forward, like a friend giving advice :)

There are two parts to this book - the first part featured basic care for indoor plants, and the second part features his journal with some of his plants.

The first part definitely helped me clear some doubts I had about taking care of my plants like watering and light intensity. And I've picked up a few useful tips in taking care of my plants!

The second part was the "fun" part for me - it was lovely to see how Darryl's plants progressed! Some plants, unfortunately, had pest infestation, some grew marvelously etc...it made me realize that sometimes, it's not you. (I always had that idea that all your plants have to look good in order to be a good plant parent!) Don't stress out if sometimes, your plants' leaves started yellowing, or if you accidentally killed one or two plants...just learn from the mistake, and try not to repeat it! Or sometimes, it's just the plant shedding old leaves to make way for new leaves.

Definitely recommended to those who are starting off (or thinking to start off) indoor gardening!
