Types of Indoor Plants

Many plants are suited to indoor conditions. Some grow well in low light, some prefer a sunny spot and others are unaffected by air cons and heaters. The most popular varieties include monsteras, peace lilies, rubber plants and anthuriums: 

  • Monsteras: Loved for their big, exotic-shaped leaves and vibrant green shades.
  • Peace lilies: Elegant and stand for hope and healing. Many people feel like they’re cleansing their homes of bad energy when they have them around.
  • Fiscus elasticas: Aka rubber plants have bold, dark leaves. They will look striking anywhere in the home and are also very easy to care for.
  • Anthuriums: Adored for their tropical-like appearance (heart-shaped red flowers, glossy green leaves) and will add colour and character to any room.

Benefits of House Plants

Indoor house plants don’t just look good, they can do you good too. They increase oxygen levels and suck up harmful gases, therefore improving and purifying the air quality in the home. Other benefits include the following:

  • Reduced stress levels: House plants have positive impacts on mental health. Even just looking at plants will reduce your feelings of anxiety or depression.
  • Increased productivity: A cheerful, plant-filled workplace naturally lends itself to a better work ethic. People who study or work around plants focus better too.
  • Boosted immune system: Being around indoor plants will help you fight viruses and illness. They absorb pollutants and filter out toxic chemicals.
  • Reduced allergies: House plants that don’t produce pollen can help relieve the symptoms of asthma and hay fever, as well as minimise dust and mould.
  • Improved sleep: Because of all the reasons mentioned above, it will be easier for you to fall asleep and stay asleep if you have a healthy indoor plant nearby.
