Who knew that there was such an event? Not me...but this one makes me happy. September 15-21 is National Indoor Plant Week. I'm a BIG indoor and outdoor plant lover and owner. I have several large indoor floor plants and a few small ones. I've actually scaled back in the last year; they do have a way of taking over.
Here's a layout I did using photos of plants in my home.

Indoor plants are great for our health and our interior design. They give us oxygen and we give them the carbon dioxide they desperately need. Plants are nature's natural purifiers and certain plants can absorb almost all volatile organic compounds in indoor air from most common chemicals like ammonia, formaldehyde and benzene. These chemicals are often emitted from products like carpets, printer ink, tobacco smoke and cleaning products.
I know that not all of us have a green thumb but plants have a remarkable way of surviving our mistakes, like to much watering or too little. The trick is to find the perfect plants for your home and family life.
So if you're like me with lots of plants in your home or if you're thinking of adding plants to your home or work office, remember to show them some extra love this week...you'll breathe a little easier too!
