Why Are Plant Lovers Important In Our Society?

   I have a sibling who is truly into plants unlike ever before. This is a great transition coming from this sibling. As a result, my house outside became like a garden. One time, my sibling has not been around the house for a couple of weeks. Since there has been no one who waters and/sprays her plants, I told her that I would be the one to do it. So I helped her make the dream come true by taking care of the plants, watering them, letting them grow, and keeping them as healthy as possible especially when she wasn't around. The external environment has become fresher and fresher almost every week as new plants came. 

   Everywhere I go on FB, I also started noticing something. I'm beginning to see more acquaintances, friends, and family members posting about their plants. This means that a community of plant lovers must be growing..Mmmmm. Here are the following few reasons why I think plant lovers are truly important in our society. The more we adore and are inclined to take care of the plants, the more we become aware of our environment. Second, as the plant lover community continues to grow, depending on where we display our plants as this could save our mother earth. In our case, our plants are mostly outside. This should be done the same even at the top of every building. The last reason is that planting is definitely an environmentally friendly hobby. 

  This can be a great hobby that anybody can do. All you just need are just passion, love, dedication, patience, and commitment to your plants. We need some patience because sometimes we may encounter one of our plants bitten by pests, death due to sunburn, and other possible conditions. We might become impatient asking ourselves such as where is the plant growth or how long it might take for plants to grow. Sometimes you still have no choice but to cut one leaf or two in a plant due to the reasons mentioned. However, nothing is impossible in being a responsible plant lover. These are the key to being a responsible plant lover based only on my experience. If you are interested and would like to be a new plant lover, It's better that you join the FB communities and do more research in order to know the correct way of doing it. It seems to me that there is an added hope for our mother earth due to this growing hobby.
