Houseplant Appreciation Day has been 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 little empty, plain and looks odd. Some of you would have forgotten to take care of the treasured houseplant with the 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 little more care and love in maintaining those houseplants. For others, the Houseplant Appreciation Day is the best time to buy a houseplant and acknowledge how special and important they are.
