If you’re looking to add a little color and life to your living space, then we have the answer!
Plants are easy to care for, add beauty and color, and have even been shown to help reduce stress! Not only that but houseplants are good for your health they essentially do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This not only freshens up the air, but also eliminates harmful toxins.
As a lot of us are now working from home place plants, especially those with broad leaves, on your desk; they will help regulate humidity and increase levels of positivity — seeing greenery and nature help us feel more relaxed and calm, which in turn benefits your everyday mood. Indoor plants serve a practical and aesthetic purpose, and will enhance your life.
An indoor garden can be your refuge from the outside world, and for many people it is a source of great joy.
Whether you live in a small apartment, or a large house, by introducing certain plants into your home, you will start to notice improvements to your health, and overall happiness.
Planting outside comes with its fair share of difficulties. But most of us have at least a room or two—even if we’re sharing an apartment—and a window with some light to call our own. Which is why everyone should have at least one or two easy-to-care-for indoor plants!
From indoor trees to bathroom plants and kitchen plants to bedroom plants, there’s an easy-care houseplant here for just about everyone.
Aloe Vera plants are not only pretty—and sturdy—but keeping one around has an added benefit: Snap off one of their leaves, and the thick gel-like sap makes an excellent balm for sunburns!
Stunning veined leaves define the prayer plant (they curl up, as though they’re in prayer, when darkness arrives). It’s a fun plant to add to kitchen counters and windowsills. Make sure it has access to moderate light, and keep the soil moist.
If you’re itching to get a gorgeous palm like this one in your home, we recommend starting with a Lady Palm: It’s a lot less finicky than most other varieties, and requires only indirect light. Water only when the top inch of soil is dry.
No green thumb? No problem: The Snake Plant is practically indestructible. In fact, we’d be impressed if you managed to kill this one. It tolerates low light and can be left to dry between watering’s.
Monstera, Monstera Deliciosa: “Swiss Cheese Plant”
Chances are you’ve spotted its graphic leaves on everything from throw pillows to wallpaper. Here’s a look at the care and keeping of this statement-making plant.
Monstera is a tropical plant from the Araceae family. Its name, as one might guess, comes from the Latin meaning “abnormal” because of its odd-looking, perforated leaves that are often punched through with holes.
In the wilds of the jungle, Monstera can grow to be enormous: dozens of feet tall with leaves that spread to nearly two feet wide.
