Why Grow Houseplants?

Along with being a beautiful addition to any style of decor, houseplants have a variety of other benefits, too! Here are just a few reasons why raising plants inside can make your space the great indoors.

Plants purify the air:

  • Plants have been shown to remove airborne contaminants that can cause headaches, allergies and more, while also producing clean air and improving the air quality around them.
  • Plants work like sponges by trapping toxins from the air and either absorbing them or breaking them down into harmless byproducts.
  • Indoor plants reduce dust and increase humidity levels in the home.
  • During photosynthesis, plants reduce carbon dioxide in the air and add oxygen, helping you breathe better. 

Plants are mood enhancers:

  • Plants can reduce stress and help you feel happier.
  • Plants teach us empathy as caring for them increases compassion and improves relationships.
  • Looking at flowering plants can have an immediate impact on happiness and memory by reminding us of a positive event.
  • Plants help you feel more optimistic.

Plants help you think:

  • Plants can provide a natural distraction from hours in front of a computer screen or a pile of homework.
  • Having a bit of Mother Nature to look at on your desk can help you renew your attention and gives stimulation to your brain and senses.
