Plants have in many proved to be the best when it comes to health. They are actually amongst a few things that can take your home to the next level and prove you’re a real adult if i can say. A bookshelf, a bar cart, and perhaps most of all, an indoor plant. But let’s be real—most people aren’t plant experts and have no idea where to start (admitting it is the first step). Luckily, For starters, Marino recommends choosing a plant based off the conditions your space provides. So, “if you’re looking for a plant to put on a windowsill that receives bright direct sun all day long, choose one that thrives in those dry and sunny conditions, like an echeveria or haworthia (two popular types of succulents ).
Having a plant does more than make you feel like you’ve got this whole #adulting thing down but interacting with indoor plants can can reduce both physiological and psychological stress. Plus, plants are great at purifying the air in your home by filtering out everyday pollutants. Here are somr of the plants that we recommend for your house & you’ll start reaping all the healthy benefits.
1. Pothos : “Sometimes referred to as the ‘cubicle plant,’ the pothos is a great pick if you’re a self-proclaimed ‘black thumb, (Just so you know, a ‘black thumb’ is the total opposite of a ‘green thumb’) And while this plant starts out small, its trailing vines can grow to over 10 feet long (WOW), even indoors where lower light and dry air make conditions less than ideal. As an added bonus, this plant is super easy to grow, and propagates (translation: breeds more pothos) in water. While you’ll need to learn how to propagate a Pothos plant , you can basically get as many plants as you want for the price of one. And like the, the pothos filters benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. The question now is are they Pet friendly? & the answer is No! So this plant can be for someone who doesn’t like pets.
2.The ZZ Plant : If you live in a lower light environment, Marino suggests getting a ZZ Plant because they’re drought tolerant and incredibly low maintenance. You might notice the ZZ has large potato-like rhizomes (a.k.a. horizontal stems that continuously grow) under the surface of its surrounding potting mix. These rhizomes, store water and help the plant survive drought in its natural environment. That means “they’ll also help it survive infrequent waterings in your space”—think once a month if your plant’s in medium indirect light. many cultures believe a ZZ Plant “symbolizes prosperity and friendship,” making it a great housewarming gift.
3. The Philodendron Green : In the right indoor conditions, the philodendron’s heart-shaped leaves and trailing vines can grow to over 10 feet long, like the pothos. This makes it a great plant if you’ve got high shelves, or want to add a hanging planter to your home decor (the ultimate in #adulting). Also like the pothos, it’s incredibly easy to prune and propagate, if you prefer a more compact shape. It’s also one of the easiest houseplants to grow. Though it’s not the most air-purifying plant out there, philodendrons do filter formaldehyde. Not too shabby for a low-maintenance plant that’s perfect for newbies.
