Summary Oakes, an urban houseplant expert and environmental scientist, has managed to grow 1,000 houseplants in her Brooklyn apartment-- and they are thriving! Her secret? She approaches her relationships with plants as intentionally as if they were people. Here she encourages readers to develop an entirely new relationship with plants by becoming their 'plant parent.' Seeing the world from a plant's perspective, you'll learn to trade modern consumerism for sustainability, and become a caretaker for our planet. -- adapted from jacket
