How to Celebrate Houseplant Appreciation Day

Indoor plants add greenery, brighten the look and mood of a home, and have a variety of other beneficial effects. They create more nourishing oxygen in the home while helping to remove CO2. Having green plants indoors results in cleaner, healthier air, a reduction in noise, lowered stress levels, and even enhanced productivity. With all of these benefits, it shouldn’t be surprising that houseplants have their very own day — Houseplant Appreciation Day.

For 2015, Houseplant Appreciation Day is on Saturday, January 10. For those who love plants, it’s a great day to pause and acknowledge all that indoor plants do for our quality of life. It’s also a great time to add to your own houseplant collection or enhance the lives of friends and loved ones by gifting them with a houseplant or two.

Whether in the home or at the office, houseplants add much to the quality of life of those who spend time in the space. Consider these house plant ideas for yourself or someone you care about this Houseplant Appreciation Day:

Peace Lily

Peace Lily is considered one of the easiest plants to care for, and it is also one of the most beneficial for your health. Studies have shown it is very effective in helping to remove common household toxins as it purifies the air you breathe. If you or a loved one lacks a “green thumb,” then the┬áPeace Lily is the plant for you.

Bamboo

A bamboo house plant brings with it a serene, “zen” vibe to any environment. It is also considered a magnet for good luck. Bamboo is pretty easy to care for, too; indirect sunlight, mild temperatures, and new water every week is a winning formula to help keep your lucky bamboo happy and thriving.

Pachira (Money Tree)

If more financial abundance is what you desire, it can’t hurt to have a Money (Pachira) Tree around. A Money Tree can help you to harmonize the elements of your space, improve the flow of “chi” around your home and even bring more good fortune and prosperity. A Pachira plant is believed to draw in more financial abundance, making it an ideal gift for yourself or someone you care about.
