Importance of having indoor Plants

We always crave for that perfect look which stands out amongst the ordinary, when it comes to designing the interior of our dream home. The element of green has always been on the less demanding side, however studies and research has shown that by adding indoor plants to your home brings about aesthetic changes and health benefits too.

Indoor plants purify Indoor environment

When it comes to sprucing up the indoor of your dream home spending a little on indoor plants can go a long way. Even if you don’t notice a plants presence, seeing one can make you feel calm and relaxed. An average person spends around 70 percent of his/her time at home, while air pollutants that have an effect on air quality at home needs to be addressed in a much natural way that is effective and a little less on the pocket too. Air pollutants can be of major concern for people having asthma and allergies, allergens like dust, mold and formaldehyde can be eliminated by investing in plants. They are beautiful, uplifting and can be potted in ceramic pots that set contrast to the color scheme of our interiors.

Health Benefits

There are many health benefits of spending time outdoor walking among plants and trees, what the Japanese call “Forest bathing”, but by adding some of that greenery indoor can have effect on overall health and wellbeing of a person. Research has shown that by adding greenery to your home or workplace can lower stress, make you feel relax and less fatigued, increase productivity, improve air quality, improve flow of oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide, positively affect your mood and enhance indoors aesthetically.

Which plant’s to choose for indoor

Keeping plants indoor is a natural life hack, a ceaseless charity from religious perspective and a perfect way to care for the nature. Not all varieties of plant can be grown indoors, look for plants that have a green lush foliage and can thrive under low light conditions. Certain flowering plants can also be grown indoors only if your household has enough direct or indirect sunlight, however it is recommended that flowering plants do best in open areas like terraces as they need direct sunlight for optimal growth. It’s easy to buy a plant and keep it at a corner of your living room, but the most important part is the care of the plant itself. The basic care is annual pruning and regular watering, as indoor plants do not require daily watering, the rule of thumb is always check the top layer of soil and if feels dry, water the plant. It is recommended that we choose plants that need less care and sunlight for our indoors, choose plants that are tough and can thrive in any condition except total darkness. Certain varieties of cacti and succulents can also be brought indoor, because of their tiny size they are perfect fit for table tops.
