What happens to an individualâe(tm)s estate after they are gone is very much within their control. Estate planning is
not only for the wealthy; it is for everyone. It is simply the process of deciding where your assets are to be distributed after your death.

For those people who wish to preserve their assets for designated purposes, such as family or special charities, it becomes necessary to make special advance preparations. Performing these important preparations is commonly referred to as estate planning.

For an individual to help ensure that his assets are protected and final wishes carried out, there are some common actions that need to be taken now. Proper estate planning allows you to plan for yourself and your loved ones without giving up control of your affairs.

Your estate plan should allow for the possibility of your own disability. It should give what you own to whom you want, at a time of your choosing, the way you want. Your estate plan should include fully disclosed, controlled costs for you and for those you love. The last thing you want to worry about is having it drained of value through taxes and legal costs.

The right plan can protect the value of your estate and spare your loved ones unnecessary hassles.

Houseplants are one of the most enduring members of any household, providing a much needed addition of color, fresh oxygen, and character to any room. They can add a boost to your mood, the quality of air in your home, and the feeling you get when you return from a long day of work. For single people, they add a sense of responsibility to a home, especially for those without pets, and for families, they are a fun way to teach children responsibility. But every houseplant needs a different amount of care, including water, food, and sunlight. Some plants, with too much light or too little water, will simply die without warning. To combat this, you need a complete guide to understanding what keeps some plants alive.

Their specific needs are even more broken down by showing you all of the various houseplants known in existence and a guide for each type of houseplant with specific care instructions for how they best thrive in a myriad of conditions.
Top houseplant experts and gardeners have contributed their insight through various interviews to further the knowledge you can gain from this book and to help you overcome particularly finicky houseplants, finding the right location in the home, avoiding meddling pests and pets, and making sure some unknown contagion is not interfering with the growth of your plants.
