Walk The Plant
Walk the Plant
First, we were told that we should talk or sing
to our houseplants to help them grow. Now we’re told that we have to take them for a
walk on Take Your Houseplant for a Walk
Day on July 27? While it is true that a study conducted by the UK’s Royal Horticultural Society demonstrated that women’s voices helped tomato plants grow at a faster rate
than men’s voices, there has not yet been a conclusive study to declare that plants enjoy going on walks with their owners. But don’t
let that stop you!
This day isn’t just a day to take your houseplant for a walk but to shower your houseplants with attention. They’ve been indoors for many months and might like a bit of sunlight and fresh air. Moreover, houseplants need a good dusting. Dusty leaves inhibit photosynthesis, and a plant’s health could suffer. Furthermore, walking outside with your houseplant will benefit you, too. Gardening has long been proven to be a stress reducer. So, too, is taking a walk with your houseplant.
