Reeves takes a look at indoor ferns, too. He uses the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, N.C., as a backdrop to learn more about these primitive plants and their care in the home.
Finally, Reeves points out that the luffa sponge you enjoy in your bath doesn't come from the ocean but from a gourd you can easily grow in your garden. He shows how to grow the gourd and then how to make a sponge from its contents.
