Plants create a healthy environment for your body.
You may think of plants as high-maintenance decor, but they can provide much more than beautiful scenery. Studies show that plants work to clean and purify the air in your space, and they remove toxins that you otherwise would be breathing in daily. But, wait it gets even better. We know how frustrating it can be when dust bunnies appear only a few days after you vacuum. Dust is unavoidable in indoor environments, but you can reduce the amount of dust in your home with a houseplant! Recent research shows that plants can reduce up to 20% of household dust.
The air feels cleaner already, doesn't it? Well, in addition to the benefits previously mentioned, household plants work to absorb airborne microbes that can cause minimal irritation or infections that affect your body. How refreshing!

In-home greenery can improve your mood.
We're always looking for ways to improve our mental health, and plants can serve as a natural mood booster. Many of us work from home now. While working at home is convenient, it can feel slightly isolating when you spend long hours indoors.
Bringing a sense of nature into your space can help you feel more connected with the outdoors, even when you're sitting at a desk all day long. Studies show that plants have a soothing effect on our mental health, benefiting productivity, concentration, cognitive function, and even providing some stress relief.
Its also said that people who live with houseplants develop a more nurturing personality and a positive mindset.

I want to buy some houseplants, but where do I start?
This can be a difficult task for people who are prone to killing plants or those who find difficulty picking the right decor elements.
We recommend doing your research before you shop for greenery. Nobody wants their plants to die, but luckily, there are plenty of options that are extra easy to maintain. Seek advice from plant specialists about how to properly care for your picks. If you have a lot of natural light in your home, you can do well with a plant that requires lots of sunlight. On the other hand, some plants do better with minimal light. Find the plant you feel confident caring for and make a note of what it will need to thrive in your home, then create a maintenance plan.
Next, consider the size and decor goals for your living space. If you don't have the room for a large plant, look for something medium-sized or stock up on small easy-to-care-for succulents. Designate places in your home layout where your plant will fit in with your decor, and make sure this spot is compatible with your plant's needs.
You can even mix and match large greenery as statement decor and small potted plants for a colorful touch to your coffee, dining, or side tables.
