When January arrives, we still have a few months of winter remaining. The perennials outside haven’t started to bloom just yet, and the days are still short.
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.
National Houseplant Appreciation Day is on January 10th, just in time to bring a little green into your home. Let Blossom Flower Shops find the perfect one for you!
Choosing Plants to Celebrate
Just about any plant can qualify as a houseplant, but there are some plants that will fare better inside during the winter. You might try a Blooming Peace Lily plant, which is sometimes called a Spath lily, for a plant that requires virtually zero attention and works wonderfully in a humid place, like a bathroom.
Another beautiful houseplant with strong survival skills is Dieffenbachia. Its cheerful speckled leaves look beautiful and it’s a terrific plant for a workplace, or a gathering spot in your home, like the living room or the den.
For an elegant addition to your home, you might try an amaryllis plant, which is a perfect way to celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day with a friend. This graceful and lithe houseplant will brighten their office or home for the entire year. Blossom Flower Shops has a houseplant for every occasion, from tall, elegant blooms to stout, hardy plants.
How to Care for Your Houseplants
If you’re new to the beauty of houseplants or feel unprepared to care for something green for the long term, don’t worry! Your houseplant will become a versatile and hardy part of your home the moment you place it in a little spot of sun.
Fertilizing and feeding your houseplant is easy with liquid plant food. Just place a few drops into your watering can and watch your plant grow big, healthy leaves. Even if you have to travel or leave your plant behind for a few weeks, most houseplants will survive the occasional dry spell with ease.
Simple Plants and Beautiful Benefits
With simple and minimal care, your new houseplant will become a familiar and happy part of your household. You’ll feel welcomed and relaxed when you come home from work each day and see your beautiful green plant on the entryway table.
Or, dress up your desk at work with a beautiful houseplant basket that will offer calming comfort during a hectic week. Celebrating National Houseplant Day is easy and fun, and the beauty of your houseplant will last all year long.
