Take Your House Plant For A Walk

As crazy as it sounds, taking your houseplant for a walk is actually a thing. Mind you it is not a very popular holiday 🙂 and I intend to make it one by spreading the word. It was celebrated yesterday, July 27th by [hopefully] many plant owners. The idea is to celebrate plants, and to acquaint plants with their surroundings, which is supposed to be healthy for them. Plant-lovers can admire each others’ plants, and exchange stories and tips on plant-care.

My 5 month old son and I usually go on long walks on one of the trails in our neighbourhood. Yesterday Peperomia argyreia came along.

Peperomia argyreia lets her hair down
Peperomia argyreia enjoying the fresh air
Peperomia argyreia pleading if we could stay a little longer
On our way home. A happy peperomia argyreia

That is what we did yesterday. What did you and your plants do?

Hi, I’m Barbara and I’m a little obsessed with house plants. I share my house plant adventures in the hopes of inspiring you to continue to enjoy the greens in your home. And if you have no plants (yet!) I hope this blog inspires you to add some green to your home. So go on! Try it! I think you might quite like it. And who knows? You may end up being … obsessed too.

    Hi Barbara, I’ve been away for awhile – I love your new look blog 🙂
    In answer to your question …what did you and your plants do … hmmm… dry + warm sunny (although winter) days + forgetful me = Not very happy / alive plants 🙁 I’ve had a lot on lately and I thought they’d be OK. I was wrong. Maybe a walk would cheer them up!
