How to Celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day

Did you know that houseplants have their very own holiday? Yes, that’s right; National Houseplant Appreciation Day is Saturday, January 10 this year. Do you know what you’re going to do to celebrate?

Houseplants bring more to your life and well-being than you probably realize. In our modern, technology-driven world, it’s all too easy to get cut off from our natural roots. If you live in a high rise apartment building or other urban setting, at times houseplants are the only thing keeping you connected with the natural world. Plants offer many beneficial qualities, including purifying the air and eliminating toxins from the environment.

If you’re wondering how to celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day, the following is a guide to some of the best green plants for your home or office environment. Consider adding these plants to your own home decor or gifting them to those you love:

Pothos Plant

This beautiful plant is lush, richly green and grows freely and beautifully in an ornate, vined configuration. It’s also easy to care for and looks beautiful all year round. Pothos Plant is low maintenance for those who lack a green thumb and can grow for many years to come with a minimal amount of care.

Umbrella Plant (Schefflera Arboricola)

The Schefflera Arboricola is also known as the Umbrella Plant, called as such due to its pretty arching leaves and branches. It’s beautiful and relatively easy to care for, so it can make for an ideal gift for those who aren’t very adept at plant care. With enough light and the optimal amount of watering, this plant can last for many years.

Peace Lily

Peace Lilies  are widely regarded for their ease of care as well as their ability to cleanse the air of toxins and contaminants. Peace Lily is brilliant green in color with shiny, resilient leaves and bright white blooms. Consider sending a Peace Lily in a wicker basket, a Peace Lily in Ceramic or a Table Top Peace Lily in Ceramic to friends and loved ones.

Houseplants do so much for us, and National Houseplant Appreciation Day is the perfect time to show your gratitude. For 2015, National Houseplant Appreciation Day is Saturday, January 10. Consider these plant gift ideas for yourself or someone you care about. If you have questions, contact Eastern Floral for more information or for alternative gift ideas.
