Best Indoor Plants for Your Homes
A few things can take your home to the next level: perhaps most of all do prefer–an indoor plant. But let’s be real—most people are not plant experts and have no idea where to start.
First, evaluate the space where you want to place the plants and once you’ve identified the spots that can accommodate plant life, consider the climate. Is it a tropical or seasonal environment, and do you have any hot zones in your home?
Well, the big q is: How much light comes in through the windows? Also, check the direction your windows face. The answer will help you find out what type of plants can thrive in your space. Choose plants that will grow well in low light and compensate for the lack of light through fertilizer and grow lights.
When you bring plants to your life, it creates a positive effect on your mental health. Plants can provide the ability to calm anxiety and refocus your energy into something more productive. Including some greenery helps to purify the air in your home as they filter out pollutants.
You will start experiencing all the health benefits once you introduce the following plants into your home–
As they are more commonly called, chrysanthemums or mums make beautiful houseplants with bright, cheerful blooms. They are straightforward to care when you provide a sunny location, well-drained soil, and enough water. Once all that is in place, you will have an attractive addition to your room. These are air-purifying plants. Chrysanthemums remove ammonia and formaldehyde from indoor air.
The snake plant gets its name from the thin, upright leaves with -irregular green banding that look like snakeskin. Besides looking cool, it’s a low-maintenance plant. Although the snake plants prefer bright light, they can survive lower light levels too.
They also filter out nasty chemicals, like benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and toluene, so that you can breathe easy.
Bamboo Palms are fantastic if you want to add a tropical feel to your house. While this houseplant prefers bright light, it can do very well in low light as long as it receives enough water. Bamboo palm is best at reducing the airborne formaldehyde that is released by new furniture.
Spider plants seem to live, even when neglected. They need moist soil but will forgive you if you forget to water them occasionally. Keep spider plants in moderate light and avoid direct sunlight. These plants remove carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and xylene from the air. They require bright light but no direct sun, so they’re perfect to put in a room with big windows.
Having ferns in your home is an instant conversation starter, thanks to its bright green, ripple-edged fronds. Because ferns thrive in medium indirect light and a humid environment, they would do great in a bathroom, as long as windows receive natural light. That’s where you are likely to use household toxins, like harsh cleaners.
It’s time to add a peace lily to your mix. This plant needs more attention compared to other indoor plants. This means keeping it moist without over-watering and placing it in a bright but shady place.
The peace lily’s flower has pollen, so this plant might not be appropriate for people who struggle with allergies.
But if that is not the case with you, then put a peace lily in your bedroom since it gives out oxygen at night, while most the other plants do it during the day. Besides having oxygen, this plant also removes ammonia, benzene, and formaldehyde.
This plant is not just easy to care for, it’s also known as ‘the healer plant’. The juice of this plant has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. You can use this plant to brighten up your home and heal wounds and different skin conditions.
Place the aloe vera plant in a bright, sunny spot and don’t worry about keeping it alive. It likes to get its soil very dry before watering. And even if you don’t use aloe vera for its healing properties, you can still reap all its air-purification benefits as it removes formaldehyde.
