How important is it for you to breathe fresh air each day? Probably super important! Indoor plants not only help to green up the look of your interior, but they also make healthy and decorative home accessories. Here’s a quick guide to some of the top house plants to use to clean your air and brighten up the look of your indoor space.
A spider plant is a good indoor plant because it is super easy to grow. If you are new to houseplants, and you are afraid they might die, the good news is it takes a lot to kill this plant. As long as you keep it in the direct sunlight, you should be in the clear. The spider plant will remove pollutants and help keep your air fresh and clean.
A Boston fern will also remove pollutants like formaldehyde, but this type of plant needs lots of humidity. Keep an eye on its soil and give it a good watering at least once a month, or more if the soil is very dry. This fern also loves direct sunlight.
The weeping fig is a great plant to have because it can grow anywhere from 1 to 10 feet tall. It all depends on the type of planter that it is in and if it has room to grow. The weeping fig also survives with indirect sunlight and will remove many different pollutants from your home, all thanks to its air cleaning abilities.
Aloe Vera is a plant most of us are aware of. Maybe not the plant itself but the lotion that comes from the plant. The liquid that comes from the Aloe Vera leaves help with inflammation and can be used to ease the discomfort of burns, wounds and sunburn. It’s a useful plant to have on hand for basic first aid, plus it also removes pollutants like the other houseplants.
The peace lily makes a beautiful houseplant just to look at, let alone all the hidden benefits it brings along. This plant does not like to be in the sunlight. It blossoms with beautiful flowers around the summer months.
Succulents are another great type of plant that you can actually put inside your bedroom. Keeping these plants in your bedroom will help oxygen spread at night.
Each one of these houseplants will help keep the air you breathe nice and fresh, and make it easier for you to breathe. The plants will help eliminate germs that spread throughout your living space.
One neat fact that you might not know is that plants actually help you concentrate better. Just think of walking through the forest and amongst all the beautiful nature. How easy is it to focus and be productive when you surround yourself with clean energy and beautiful plants? Having plants outside in your garden and around your property, such as the homes located at Ocean Front Hilton Head Island, will give your home an extra feelgood factor too. So if you love plants, consider how you could add some extra oomph to the outside of your property by adding plants in pots, containers or hanging baskets.
