National Indoor Plant Week

Caroline Puckett

As the third week of September quickly approaches, we join together to celebrate National Indoor Plant Week, a holiday dedicated to showing our appreciation and knowledge for the plants and nature around us. There are many benefits that are attached to becoming an indoor plant caretaker. Plants provide clean and purified air, relieve stress, reduce noise and serve as stylish decor for your homes while also keeping us more in tune with nature. For this upcoming national holiday, we hope you join in this celebration as we discuss some of the best plant nurseries here in San Antonio, where you can find your next potted friend.
