House plants to make your home (or office) Feel Good
House plants can do a lot more than add a bit of greenery, they have so many benefits! The biophilic design trend is about bringing the outdoors in and helping us to reconnect with nature. So, here are some of our favourite house plants and their health benefits.
This dramatic-looking plant is considered one of the most adaptable of houseplants and the easiest to grow. It names from its spider-like leaves which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web.
The benefit of this plant is its air-purifying quality allowing it to remove formaldehyde from the air. It can grow in any type of soil, only needs occasional watering, and dislikes direct sunlight.
These plants are technically succulents, which means they retain water in dry conditions – so they’re pretty hardcore! Aloe Vera plants are stemless or have very short stems with thick, fleshy leaves.
The benefits are that the inner part of the leaf can be applied to the skin to soothe irritation and sunburn. They are a bit more demanding as they prefer bright indirect sunlight and lots of water. But they can survive in artificial lights.
The tall, leafy plant is known for being very tolerable and for its architectural shape. These are around seven different species of snake plants all native to tropical/sub-tropical regions of Europe. They are all evergreen and can grow anywhere from 8 inches to a whopping 12 feet high!
Snake plants purify the air and are another one that is easy to care for. They only need occasional watering and dislike direct sunlight but overall aren’t too fussy!
We hope you love these plants as much as we do and we’ve inspired you to have a little upgrade. If you’re a new plant parent or you’re already a plant expert, let us know which is your favourite plant!
