House Plant Halfway House

House plants have a strange level of control over our emotions. We all have ungainly or unmodern house plants that we would like to 'get rid of' but don't have the heart to leave them out by the rubbish to die. (In fact I have even foolishly saved other peoples outcasts from the frost and snow). The House Plant Home would allow one to drop off ones unwanted houseplant safe in the knowledge that it would be re-homed, to those less houseplant-fortunate than onesself.
Alternatively : House Plant Hits
One simple call to House Plant Hits and you will find on returning to your home that your plant 'problem' has mysteriously disapeared.

       [LL] Plants hopelessly caught in the 70s like cheese plants and spider plants, though I think spider plants are making a come back due to their toxic substance absorbing properties. BTW I like your name much better can I steal it ?

       Or a plant orphanage. Prospective plant owners could adopt a plant of their choosing.

       HB is full of ideas to have less permanent ownership of stuff and things. There are dozens of ideas to rent, lease, sell, dispose, trade, etc., things such as a coffins, corpses, dentures, donkeys, dogs, families, affection, gravity, bitches, chem labs, luggage, stuff-not-yet-for-rent, boats, computers, kids, pets, uniforms, muggers, goats, and now house plants. Can a database attain (zen) Zero Mind? And if it did, would it still want houseplants?
