The holidays are over, and the decorations are packed away for next year. Now your house has an empty look and feeling. Although it isn’t an official holiday or observance, Houseplant Appreciation Day falls on the 10th of January of every year. Bice’s Florist would love to encourage our customers to take advantage of this day either to rekindle an existing relationship with houseplants or to get acquainted with them for the first time.
Houseplants add color and interest to your home — especially after the holidays when your house will likely look dull. Without the color from holiday decorations or beautiful holiday flowers, your house may feel tired and old. Because the breathing cycle of plants is the opposite of that of humans, the more plants you keep in your home, the fresher the air will feel.
Our Grand Garden gives you the best of two worlds: low maintenance green plants and flowering plants, in the form of a kalanchoe and an African violet. The green plants include variegated ivy and a feathery palm.
Blooming Peace Lily
If you’re new to growing houseplants, start out with plants that pack a big punch in the looks department, but don’t require a lot of care. You’ll find that in our Blooming Peace Lily. The dark, shiny green leaves give way to spikes of white spathes that surround an unusual-looking flower. You’ll feel immensely rewarded by this showy plant that doesn’t need much care at all.
Bring a taste of tropical exoticism into your home. Our Zen Garden combines two easy-to-grow tropical beauties: Bromeliads and Ginger.
Take advantage of Houseplant Appreciation Day to add some color and interest to your home. The plants will improve the mood of everyone in your home, help them focus and be more productive, and remove pollutants from the air.
