Houseplant Appreciation Day

The holidays are over. The decorations have been put away for another year. The house looks a little plain, a little drab. In the greyishness of January, your eye catches something in the corner of the room. Why, it's a houseplant! Funny, but with all of the holiday hubabuloo, you've all but forgotten your houseplants.

What plants qualify as a houseplant? Well, there are plenty of plants that we think of as houseplants. Spider Plants, Rubber Plants, Aloe Vera, Bamboo, and African Violets are just a few that come to mind. In reality, a houseplant is any plant that can be grown indoors in lower light, low humidity, and cooler temperature conditions. That opens up a wide range of possibilities. We once knew a guy who grew a pumpkin plant in his basement under gro-lights. The pumpkin plant in that home scientific experiment, qualified the pumpkin plant as a houseplant.
