It’s Indoor House Plant Week – Cheshunt Homeowner – Help Boost Your Mood And Sell Your Home!
National Indoor Plants Week promotes the importance of live plants in interior spaces.
Nothing adds more beauty and comfort to our homes and offices than the lush flowers and foliage of indoor house plants. There really isn’t a space a house plant can’t enliven. Just add light and water, and you’ve got a growing indoor oasis.
Bringing plants into your home isn’t just aesthetically pleasing,- amazingly they offer strong health benefits as well!
They clean the air, reduce noise, create oxygen, remove carbon dioxide, and keep us connected with nature.
Health studies show that indoor plants can lower your risk for illnesses, boost your mood, and may promote healing.
In addition, a study concluded that houseplants can reduce indoor dust by up to 20%. In effect, houseplants are efficient air cleaners as well as improving indoor air quality by adding oxygen and humidity to the air.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Online stores, florists and greenhouses are good starting points to build your indoor greenery.
Visit the many local greenhouse’s in and around Cheshunt and wander through the indoor plant department. Look for popular indoor plants such as:
- spider plant whose fast-growing shoots produce babies you can re-pot
- Chinese evergreen
- vipers bowstring (also known as a mother-in-law’s tongue) or a
- pancake plant (Chinese money plant) which easily propagates from the shoots that sprout from the base
Just having plants around you will obviously offer psychological benefits but the act of caring for your plants can also help decrease stress and anxiety. So next time you’re watering your plants, slow down, take a few deep breaths, and really focus on what you’re doing.
