Green Home explains how to “green up” your life with an array of houseplants, and has been a bestseller in author Anders Royneberg’s home country of Norway.

Living with plants can enliven and enrich your surroundings, promoting feelings of relaxation and well-being. But where to start with curating that vital indoor collection?

Green Home features all the green plants Anders has collected in his own apartment of 50 square meters – over 100 plants – and how this inspires him towards greener living.

With a guide to houseplant types, hints and tips on how to get your plants to thrive and also on how to integrate them into your home décor scheme, it’s a plant book with added personality.

Boston

Ferns are moisture-loving plants that have excellent air-purifying properties. In the natural world ferns are sometimes considered a weed – bracken (Pteridium), for example, and a relation of the Boston fern, Nephrolepis cordifolia – but indoors their lush, rich green foliage can make them a real decorative asset. Boston ferns are available in many forms, including some with curly leaves (for example N. exaltata ‘Emina’ and ‘Fluffy Ruffles’). In the wild, they grow on the forest floor where conditions are damp and shady.

Fishbone Cactus

One of my recommendations for those of you who want a robust plant, the fishbone cactus can withstand a lot – just not direct sunlight. This unusual succulent with its fern-like fronds thrives in a damp climate and half shade – its natural home is the humid rainforest – whereas most other succulents (and cacti) are parched sun- worshippers. The fishbone cactus is particularly suited to a hanging pot or being raised up on a pedestal where its eye-catching, fishbone-shaped leaves are displayed to full effect.

Mother-in-Law’s Tongue

This is a very robust succulent that can tolerate most things, including drying out and dry indoor winter air. It is also known as the bayonet plant due to its distinctive, sharp, thick leaves. Mother-in-law’s tongue has a reputation as one of the best air-purifying plants there is, which makes it perfect for asthma- and allergy-sufferers. It magically converts carbon dioxide to oxygen, even at night, and for this reason it’s often found in bedrooms. According to NASA, it would be possible for one person to live in a hermetically sealed bedroom if it contained six to eight mother-in-law’s tongues. This may be true, but I suggest that you do not try this at home.
