Success with house plants
Reader's Digest, 1979. 089577052
The typeface and photographs look a little dated, but it is still one of the best for care of exotic plants. In its selection, it includes several palm species, and many of you may be amused to read that "amateurs" should not attempt propagation of palms by seed as it takes "far too long."

Swithinbank, Anne
