National Indoor Plant Week
Date When Celebrated : Third week of September
Indoor plants are widely popular in American homes. Yet, with their passive nature blending into the decorum of the home, they are seldom thought of, and sometimes ignored.
According to several websites, this day was created to "... promote and increase awareness of the importance of live plants in internal spaces". Those spaces can be your home, an office where you work, a hospital, or even an indoor shopping mall.
Many people do not believe they are a gardener, and do not participate in this popular hobby. To the contrary, most homes have at least one indoor houseplant in them, and often we have several. Why, that identifies us gardeners!

Origin of National Indoor Plant Week:
National Indoor Plant Week appears to have started in the early 2000's. We have not found any documentation as to who started it, or why it was established at this time. We can only guess that late September was chosen, as this is about the time people think to bring plants in from outdoors to grow as houseplants in the winter.
A truly "National" day requires either an act of congress, or a presidential proclamation. Our research did not identify either event.
