It’s no secret that lush indoor plants are the perfect way to brighten up any home. Surrounding yourself with greenery has been proven to boost creativity, reduce stress and improve air quality.
Plants are a great way to cleanse the air, which allows for easier breathing. When you breathe, your body takes in oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. So, why not grab a gorgeous orchid or a succulent for your bedroom!
Plants also cleanse the air by removing toxins such as volatile organic compounds. This includes toxic substances found in grocery bags, smoke, vinyl and rugs. Plants purify the air by taking the toxins into the soil where the roots convert toxins into food.
Additionally, plants release water, creating humidity in the air around them. This assists respiratory distresses particularly if you have a few plants together.
With busy lives, sometimes it’s easy to forget to water your plants. Luckily, there are some florae that are easier to take care of than others. Spider plants, Peace Lilys and Pothos are all fantastic options. These are ideal to spruce up the office and can tolerate low light and low-maintenance watering.
With so many incredible benefits, how many plants should we have in our home or office?
