Having plants in your home or office can be a source of pleasure. Indoor gardening relieves stress, boosts creativity, productivity, and focus, and promotes recovery.
There’s some evidence that houseplants may positively influence the air quality in your home as well. Sharing your home or workplace with living, “breathing” plants can make your environment a happier, healthier place to be.
It’s important to know which plants are toxic if you have children or pets in the home. Additionally, if you have asthma or allergies, keep a look out for species that may aggravate your symptoms.
As well as the physical and wellbeing benefits from living with indoor plants, they look beautiful and can add an interesting, and ever changing design element to you home. If you’ve got young children, they might enjoy watching a plant grow and thrive under their care so consider getting them involved in the care of your indoor plants.
