What We've Learned... The growing of houseplants didn’t garner much mention until the 17th century when English agricultural authority Sir Hugh Platt wrote of cultivating plants indoors in his tome The Garden of Eden (1652). Not long after that, greenhouses began to crop up, built for the purpose of housing exotic plants.
Plants were highly fashionable in the 1970s [and continue to be so today] and they included, philodendrons, string of hearts, Boston ferns, umbrella trees, syngoniums, tradescantias (wandering jews), kentia palms, Tahitian brides, spider plants, weeping figs, Ficus lyrata, Ficus elastica, dracaenas, aglaonemas, aluminium plants, and snake plants, which were a common sight in homes in that decade.
Leafy or flowery, house plants can brighten up any room in your home or office.
