10 Positively Priceless Plant Stories!

| Right | January 10, 2021

Dear readers,

We’re back at it again with another weirdly specific “holiday”! It’s National Houseplant Appreciation Day! I have a confession to make. I am a plant killer. I’ve even managed to kill a succulent, and I’m told that’s not easy to accomplish. It’s not that I forget to water them, or even that I overwater them. It’s starting to feel like they’re trying to spite me now.

Some people, though, have a green thumb, and any plant they touch seems to thrive just a little bit more. And I’m not bitter about those people. Nope.

Anyway, we’ve rounded up 10 stories about houseplants and flowers and the funny and strange incidents surrounding them. I’ll do my best not to kill any of them.


Water You, Stupid, Part 2 – Plants need water! Write that down! Write that down!

The Plants Are Plastic And So Are You – Saves you the trouble of dusting it, I suppose.

Very Green With The Green Fingers – Maybe you should rehome that plant…

A Pal-Tree Understanding Of Plants – Oh, come on! This one has to be trolling.

Thank You For Calling Webster’s – Forget the plants; how is this customer alive?!

This Is Lazy, But Here’s The Number, So Help Yourself Maybe – Okay, this one doesn’t even deserve plants.

Modern Divorces Require A Hedge Fund – *Writing* Cars… also… bad… for plants…

A Few Petals Short Of A Flower – But… what if I prefer geraniums?

Customer Service Can Provide Some Near-Death Experiences – A plant that looks like it’s dying when it isn’t? Now I’m really in trouble.

I Have Beef With The Plants – Okay, even I know that beef isn’t a plant.
