“After spending 30 years growing plants and 8+ years working in the industry, it’s become my mission to eradicate the masses of misinformation in the houseplant world. Unfortunately, I have never had a book to recommend to people who are looking for a manual explaining the basics of houseplant care. Every houseplant care manual I’ve come across is the same regurgitation of “common knowledge” that has little basis in what is actually going on with your houseplant. I was over here thinking I’d have to write the book myself…Until now. Raffaele’s Houseplant Warrior is the answer to my search. He explains things in simple terms but they’re based in real logic and a deep understanding of the why behind what is going on with your plant. His teaching encourages you to adapt your care to what is going on with your plant (rather than the knee-jerk “diagnosis” from that FB group that’s based on zero information). I am incredibly grateful to Raffaele for writing this book so I can recommend it to my customers!”Veronica R. Oh Happy, CPC and owner of Oh Happy Plants
