Houseplant Appreciation Day is celebrated on January 10th of every year. All the celebrations have got over, and you would have cleared away the decorations, new year gifts, cakes, and every such item of the holiday season. Now you would feel that the house is a little empty, plain, and looks odd. Some of you would have forgotten to take care of the treasured houseplant with a busy schedule. So, with the cold winter still prevailing, somewhere in the corner of your house, you would still see the little greenish plant. It’s time to take a little more care and loves in maintaining those houseplants. For others, Houseplant Appreciation Day is the best time to buy a houseplant and acknowledge how special and important they are.

History of Houseplant Appreciation Day
The Gardener’s Network has established Houseplant Appreciation Day. They have created this Day with the aim of making this an extraordinary day for growing, caring for, and loving the houseplants. Once after the holiday season, the house looks empty, drab, and monotonous. The beauty of the house fades away soon after removing the decorations. The Day has been founded to make the house look brighter and more pleasant with the greenish houseplants along with its scent of flowers. The Gardener’s Network set this Day as a reminder that you need to give your houseplants a little more attention. It is also a day to appreciate the houseplants as they are special and important.
A houseplant is usually grown indoors in residences and offices. Houseplants are commonly grown for decorative purposes. However, they have positive psychological effects. Houseplants are therapeutic, and it lifts your mood and outlook. They help with indoor air purification and add warmth and calming effect.
