I'm sure I'm not the only person that notices houseplants when they aren't the subject of attention. I think all houseplant growers do this from time to time. You could be minding your own business watching your favorite television show and in a commercial tucked away in a corner is a houseplant that catches your attention. That is how it begins; Houseplant BINGO!
Then you notice the trailing ivy sitting on the desk of the quirky receptionist in your favorite situation comedy. Houseplant BINGO!
