Houseplant Appreciation Day was formed to fall at the end of the holiday season each year. The perfect placement of this mini holiday helps to remind people of the value and beauty offered by these indoor potted plants. Although it is easy to look ahead and feel worn at the thought of winter stretching on for several more months, houseplants can help freshen the air and make everything feel more lively and cheerful. The appreciation day was started by The Gardener’s Network to help people remember their beautiful houseplants while also celebrating the value and benefits of adding a few to the home.
There are a variety of fun and creative ways that people can celebrate Houseplant Appreciation Day. For example, consider using the opportunity to teach children or others about the value of indoor plants and how to care for them. You can discuss how they add oxygen to the air and help keep the air clean in the home. You can also make sure that your plants are particularly well cared for that day, such as by adding fertilizer to the pots. You can even just sit back and bask in their beauty rather than overlook them as your busy schedule usually takes you hurrying by.
At Ah Sam Flowers, our favorite way to celebrate, however, is by either buying new potted plants to add to your personal collection or selecting one as a gift for someone else. There is nothing that can brighten the mood like a new plant. Here are a few of our favorites.

The beauty these flowers offer will help make any room feel lighter. These plants are small, which makes them the perfect addition to the corner of a desk, a bookshelf, or a table.
Urban Nature – Bromeliad Garden
This unique-looking flower comes in a lovely dish garden, which makes sit even easier to use as a decoration. The combination of the different colors and textures helps to provide a stunning contrast while also serving as a great accent for the rest of the room. Since these plants are not large and have been arranged in a dish garden, they are great choices for gift giving.
This green plant offers a lovely color while also having some incredible symbolism. The plant is often used in feng shui to promote positive feelings and attract prosperity. Even those who do not believe these purposes can still appreciate the beauty the plant offers.
