Where Does My Houseplant Come From?

Copyright: ukhouseplants


The Cut Flower & Houseplant industry is a growing market worth over £2.2B in the U.K., and $1.7 billion in the U.S, each year. Two-thirds of indoor species sold within the last twelve months originate from tropical locations around the world; this isn't surprising as over one BILLION exotic Orchids (Phalaenopsis) were sold within this period! In the Netherlands, the average household has thirteen houseplants, with over 90% owning at least one indoor plant!
