House Plant Appreciation Day Wed, Jan 09, 2019
Yes - House Plant Appreciation Day is a thing!
Houseplant Appreciation Day was established by The Gardener’s Network, establishing an official opportunity to remind people of the benefits of houseplants. Plants have been shown to be very therapeutic, have added health benefits, and a splash of green here and there is sure to brighten up any home.
If you don't already have an indoor plant sanctuary of your own, today is a great day to start. Some great house plants for beginners are:
- Aloe Vera - it's naturally a desert plant so it requires little maintenance. It prefers an environment where you don't have to water it too often, plus it's nice to have on hand for healing and moisturizing the skin.
- Small herbs - not only will they brighten up your kitchen, but you'll also unlock your inner chef with fresh ingredients on hand. These may take a little more work, but the delicious rewards are worth it!
- Spider Plant - I swear these have nothing to do with spiders... These plants add visual interest to any room with it's long, spiky leaves. They come in a number of varieties and look great as hanging plants.
With the gloomier weather during this time of the year, now is the perfect time to bring the outdoors in this winter!
