KIRKUS REVIEW

In prose and line drawings (graphic at best), this is a full record, personal, documentary, and semi-scientific of the philodendron plant in his window which the author inherited along with an apartment, and which engendered a great interest and attachment. Here are the physical details of its growth, its repotting and hanging, its care and nurture; the botanical investigation it motivated; the philosophical conclusions it stimulated; and the satisfactions derived from indoor gardening as a hobby by one who took it most seriously... The nature lover at his most loving- and specialized.
