National Houseplant Day

Happy National Houseplant Day!  And how are you going to show your philadendron that you care?  Repot it?  Give it a fertilizer spike? I don’t recommend giving it extra water, since overwatering is supposedly the number one sin people commit against their houseplants.  Perhaps a kind word or two to your fern or African violet will suffice.

This is a picture of the rubber plant I’ve had since my mom’s funeral nearly four years ago.  It’s a horse!  I’ve got to replant it soon, but I’ll need a forklift to assist me.  I love this plant, but I understand that it’s poisonous.  It’s surprising how many houseplants are poisonous.  Check out http://thefw.com/killer-plants/ and see seven relatively common plants that can kill you.

And on that happy note…enjoy your plants!
