Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day

Who doesn’t love a reason to be weird?

Well, guess what… July 27 is Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day – it’s the perfect day to release your inner weird!

Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day is a truly crazy day where you walk your houseplants around, so they can get to know their environment better.

This opportunity provides them with a sense of knowing and familiarization with their surrounding areas.

Let’s face it, we all love a little fresh air!

Who invented Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day?

Four common house plants

This special day was invented by Thomas & Ruth Roy, it is a copyrighted holiday, which means if this day is used to raise money, you must first inform the creators and come to an arrangement.

I gather that they knew the importance for humans to get exercise and realized it is also unimportant for your plants to also be active for longevity.

So, how do I celebrate the day?

Don’t worry too much if you’re a late bloomer, at least you have chosen now to improve the life of your houseplants.

The clearest way to get started would be to grab a leash, attach it to your pot, and head for the front door!

But let’s not be too hasty. Maybe the smarter way would be to cradle your houseplant in your arm and venture out.

Whatever you do ensure your friends and neighbors know all about this distinctive day so your houseplants can happily mingle. Just be prudent about any cross-pollination.

Please bear in mind that it can be a scorcher out there in July, so be sure to bring your spray bottle of water with them so they don’t become dehydrated.

If this is a bit “out there” for you, no worries you can still join in on the fun.

How about repotting your plants so they have a little more room to breathe and grow?

Another action you can take is moving your beloved plant to a different part of the home so it can explore the carbon dioxide in that new location.

 

Now I’m not going to beat around the bush here, however, it is important to remember that taking on plants requires a certain amount of responsibility.

It is your duty to ensure they have everything they need for a full prosperous and healthy life.

Happy houseplant walking folks!
