The Hidden Histories of House Plants explores the world’s most common house plants, and their journeys to our homes. The narrative explores the plants’ places in social history, art, politics, fashion and culture, showcasing the most fascinating elements of each plant’s story, be it William Morris’ palm obsession that continues to be replicated in the 21st century, or how common indoor ferns first made their way to Europe in glass jars for botanical studies, and why these terrariums are now on display in almost everyone's homes. Accompanied by stunning illustrations, each text takes the reader on a journey through time, history and culture, told by the most universally binding objects in our homes from London to Beijing; house plants.
