Botanical Therapy and the Blue Fern


It's the time of year you might be suffering from gardening withdrawal. The solution? Treat yourself to a tropical plant. While an orchid or palm might not seem so exotic sitting in the warm glow of Home Depot, most indoor plants are native to the tropical rainforest. Take one home and indulge in botanical therapy:

1. Select your tropical plant, like the blue fern (Selaginella Uncinata) pictured here.
2. Stare at your houseplant for a moment and imagine yourself in its native habitat.
3. Take a breath of that refreshing dirt scent.
4. Cough as needed.

Do you feel relaxed and renewed?
