Houseplant Appreciation Day

It’s January 10th and that means it’s Houseplant Appreciation Day!

Since I started obsessively buying houseplants a few years ago, I’ve brought my total up to around 50. In that time, yes, some have died from neglect, but most have survived, been re-potted, and placed in various locations about our cottage. They receive frequent compliments from guests and they give me a lot of joy. Sometimes when the telly is boring I find myself gazing at the greenery. It’s fun to try to spot the Calathea move.

I’ve written about house plants and their benefits before so I won’t recap. This post is really intended as a photo gallery of the house plants I currently have and to introduce my latest additions:

So how to celebrate houseplant day? It seems appropriate to give them a water and a little feed. I use Baby Bio House Plant Fertilizer. Or you could be a great friend and give a gift of a house plant?
