For years we’ve known that caring for pets is good for the physical and mental health of the elderly. Recently, though, we’ve found that there are huge health benefits for the elderly (at least for me) for caring for house plants. I’ve always liked having house plants around, but my recent bout of sciatica brought it home, big time. I was in more pain than I’ve ever known. My plants though, helped me focus on something else.
Here are some of my favorites:
Joy of new leaf coming out
7:00AM: First Light
Same plants from the side at 3:00PM
Avocado Bonsai Tree
Propagating Elephant Ear Leaf
Avocado Bonsai Tree / One Year
Fiddle-leaf Fig (Note stand made of old VHS cassette tapes)
Kitchen Appliance Pots
Redwood Tree Bonsai
Hooray for houseplants – outdoorplants, too.
