A very nice resource for those looking for practical advice.

NYBG Plant Talk

Plants are an integral part of today’s commercial interiors. They set a mood, direct foot traffic, enhance architectural features, improve productivity, and make indoor spaces healthier and more livable. The Manual of Interior Plantscaping shows you how to design all the major types of interior plantscapes—atriums, indoor gardens, green walls, potted office plants, and miniature displays like dish gardens.

You’ll learn basic design principles and the mechanics behind a successful interiorscape, as well as how to maintain and care for indoor plants, with tested information on watering practices, pruning, plant nutrition, and preventing pests and diseases. Profiles of the 60 best indoor plants will help you design a plantscape that is both functional and beautiful for years to come.
