3 Benefits Of Filling Your Home With Plants

Whether you have a green thumb or not, there’s no denying that all things plants are making a comeback with millennials. Sure, we may not be able to afford a downpayment for a house yet — but we’ll be ready with unique flower pots and plenty of greenery when the day comes.

While we may love our houseplants for how they look, there are scientifically proven benefits of keeping that philodendron or fiddle leaf fig in your bedroom or living room. In today’s blog, we’re going to cover three main benefits of filling your home with plants, six plants that are known to purify your air, and, of course, unique flower pots that can pull the entire look together.

Improve Mood

Do you feel happier when your at-home office or bedroom feel like a greenhouse? You’re not alone.

Studies indicate that having houseplants can boost mood, concentration, creativity, and productivity. Sounds like a win-win-win-win, right? We think so. A way to make these plants boost your mood even more? Repot them in unique flower pots that will make you smile every time you look their way.

 

Decrease Stress

It’s a given: all of us could use a little (or a lot) less stress in our lives. We’re not saying that buying a plant online will all of a sudden give you your dream job and get rid of all your stress — but it’s a start. Houseplants can reduce stress and fatigue, while also improving sore throats and colds.

Detoxify Air

What was that about sore throats and colds? That could be because plants clean indoor air. They absorb toxins, produce oxygen, and increase humidity. For you, this adds up to a healthier, cleaner home.

6 Plants To Help Purify Your Air

All plants will help with this, but here are six specifically known for their purifying properties:

  • Philodendron: Heart-shaped leaves? Romantic, trailing vines? Philodendrons filter formaldehyde, are easy to care for, and practically belong on that high shelf of yours.
  • Snake plant: This tropical plant with upright leaves filters benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and formaldehyde.
  • Bird’s Nest Fern: This hanging plant thrives in indirect light, making it perfect for that not-so-sunny corner you haven’t known how to decorate. It filters formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene.
  • Rubber plant: This is the classic houseplant, but it’s worthy of the fame! It filters formaldehyde and is relatively easy to care for.
  • Pothos: Have a not-so-green thumb? Try a pothos on for size. It filters benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene and looks similar to a philodendron.
  • ZZ plant: This plant helps purify air, signifies prosperity and friendship, and is incredibly low maintenance. What’s not to love?
