SG598: Top Easy-to-Grow Houseplants with Lisa Eldred Steinkopf

Lisa Eldred Steinkopf, a.k.a. The Houseplant Guru, is on the show today and guess what we’re talking about?  Ding! Ding! Ding! You’re right! Her new book on houseplants published by Cool Springs Press called Houseplants: The Complete Guide to Choosing, Growing and Caring for Indoor Plants. One of the things I appreciated the most about Lisa’s book, is that she divided the 125 houseplants featured in her book into three helpful categories: Easy to Grow, Moderately Easy-to-Grow, and Don’t-Try-This-at-Home-It’s-A-Waste-of-Money-and-Time-and-You-Really-Need-That-New-Pair-of-Shoes. Just kidding. It’s actually just called Challenging to Grow. (Which actually doesn’t sound so bad now, does it? Still - be careful here.)   Now, guess which one we spent the most time talking about?  You’re right, again - the easy-to-grow category because that’s the sweet spot. These are the plants that are the best investment of your time and money - and the plants that will give you the most personal satisfaction.
