Plants as Pets

Kind of like a pet, indoor tropical plants act as a living thing that give us company 12 months a year. We water and feed houseplants regularly, even giving them baths a couple times a year to lift dust and reestablish luster.

The more sun tolerant of our indoor plants get to join us outside in the summer months, putting on impressive growth and even blooms. Some of us have houseplants that last months, some years or even decades.

While we see the trends of plants come and go, there will always be the demand and desire to care for a living thing and to have some tropical guests share our company in our indoor spaces.

Just like there’s a pet out there for everyone who wants one, there’s a plant out there, too. Green thumb or not, you can start a plant journey at any stage of life.
