Indoor plants make you feel better
Houseplants can transform your space into a green oasis and some good om your health. You must be wondering how so. Plants basically do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This freshens up the air but also eliminates harmful toxins. NASA research reveals that indoor plants can remove up to 87% of air toxins in just 24 hours.
When we get in touch with nature, we reduce mental fatigue and stress levels, while increasing relaxation, self-esteem, and productivity. Plants at work, especially on your desk, will help regulate humidity and increase levels of positivity and benefit your everyday mood. In a few words, the succulent trend is healthy.
Create your sanctuary
An indoor sanctuary can be your haven from the world, and for many people, it is a vital part of their everyday life. Whether you live in a small apartment, a large house, or you spend most of your day at the office, by bringing certain plants into your space, you’ll notice improvements to your happiness and daily mood.
To create your perfect green refuge, it’s worthwhile doing research for what plant is suited best for your space. Here are a few things to take into consideration:
Choose the right plant
Plants are an inexpensive way to spice up even the most boring rooms and style up your living or working space. As mentioned previously, plants release oxygen during the day. However, at night photosynthesis stops and most plants release carbon dioxide. There are plants, such as orchids, succulents, that do the opposite which makes them perfect plants for the bedroom.
Choose the right spot
Most indoor plants don’t like the direct midday sun, so please be aware of your plant’s needs before purchasing it. Make the effort to choose the right houseplants that will thrive on the spot you will place it and the amount of light it can provide. There are many warning signs to know when your plant isn’t happy, such as leaf burn, spotting, or sudden leaf-fall. Most plants can be easily rescued, so don’t panic!
Some plants like it hot others like it humid and others like the shadow. Knowing what plants are best for what room is crucial when it comes to styling. Plants that like humidity will adore your bathroom and the shower moisture while plants that like high temperatures will love a sunroom or a super hot room. We can help to pick the right plant for your space, just take a look here.
Know your plant
All plants need the same things as humans to survive. Food, water, sunlight, and love. The difference is that plants require different amounts of each.
Make sure you’ve chosen the right plant for the room and the spot you will place it. The amount of sunlight is crucial for its wellbeing and its future needs.
Most plants prefer having their roots consistently moist, but not wet. Some prefer to dry out a bit between waterings. We recommend avoid watering on a schedule, but instead, test the soil with your finger to know when your plant is thirsty.
Indoor plants need regular fertilizing to maintain healthy growth. Make sure to feed them yearly and keep in mind the common rule that houseplants are usually fertilized between January and September and then rest.
Notice their leaves and their branches regularly to prevent pest problems and remove dried leaves. If you have any questions or need help don’t hesitate to contact our team.
