Plants And Flowers Can Bring Earth Day Right Into Your Home
Copyright © 2006 Wesley Berry

April 22nd is Earth Day, a day to celebrate this planet we call 
home and all the natural beauty it has to offer. Many people 
celebrate the day by planting a tree or bush or simply by 
spending the day outside, enjoying the splendor of nature. But, 
what if you live in a city where nature isn't as abundant as 
you'd like or if you're just unable to get outdoors to plant a 
tree or bush? Well, your florist could help you bring a little 
nature right into your house or apartment, no matter where you 
live. Better yet, your florist can even help you create or 
purchase a plant or arrangement that fits your lifestyle, 
personality, and living space.

Using flowers and plants, you can create looks ranging from the 
soft and natural to the dramatic and feisty. Here are just a few 
looks you can achieve:

* Natural Look: Place loose, wispy arrangements in a vase or 
glass bowl. Flowers may be monochromatic or multicolored.

* Calming: Flowers in shades of blue are proven to have a calming 
effect on our moods.

* Dramatic Look: If you're not into the more traditional styles, 
you might be interested in creating a bold, dramatic look using 
deeply colored blooms in bright orange, fiery red, or brilliant 

* Outdoorsy: If you're a country girl or guy at heart, you might 
be interested in bringing that outdoors feel inside using 
arrangements containing seasonal grasses or twigs. The 
arrangements can be placed in clay pots or baskets to further 
enhance the feel.

If you're looking for a long-lasting way to bring the green of 
the outdoors into your home, your florist can assist you in 
picking a potted plant that will flourish in the space you have 
available. Here are just a few plants you might choose from:

* Philodendron: The philodendron is a large-leafed plant 
available in red or green and with several different leaf shapes. 
Philodendrons grow beautifully in bright, indirect light and away 
from drafts. They are, however, poisonous so you should place 
them in areas that are not accessible by children or pets.

* Dieffenbachia: These plants are very popular as indoor plants 
because they grow better indoors than many other types of plants. 
In fact, they can grow up to four or five feet tall under the 
right conditions.

* Cactus: The cactus is perfect for the individual with little 
time to spend caring for plants and limited space. They are 
extremely hardy and, because the soil should be allowed to 
thoroughly dry between waterings, they require very little 

* Areca Palm: A beautiful plant with a tropical look, the areca 
palm is available in various sizes from 3 feet all the way up to 
10 feet tall. They grow well in bright locations with ample 

Regardless of your location or living arrangements, celebrate 
this Earth Day with a call to your florist. Bring a little nature 
into your home!
