Must-have indoor plants to add this season

When it comes to decorating your home, few items deliver as many benefits as adding some indoor plants.

Some of the must-have indoor plants will also have a positive effect on your health, especially if they enhance air quality. Aesthetically, they can give any room a natural feel. We’ve prepared a collection of must-have indoor plants and why they are a worthy addition so let’s get started!

What are the benefits?

Aside from their decorative benefits, indoor plants can reduce carbon dioxide in your house. According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, adding indoor plants to your house reduces the carbon dioxide peaks that occur when it’s busy. This is especially important if you live in an urban area or use gas cooking devices.

If your property benefits from expansive windows but you want natural shading, larger plants can prove effective. For those who crave privacy, a large plant may seem preferable to adding and adjusting blinds.

In terms of wellbeing, there’s a growing body of evidence showing that indoor plants deliver a plethora of benefits. NASA’s clean air study found that certain species can detoxify your household, leading to a reduction in fatigue and less illness. A team at Texas Agriculture & Medicine University found that they boost concentration and happiness levels.

Which indoor plants should you use in your home?

  • Barberton Daisy: A vibrant flower that cleanses toxins such as Formaldehyde.
  • Oxalis Triangularis: Features vibrant purple leaves that open in response to light and purifies the air.
  • Bonsai tree: Aesthetically pleasing and boosts feelings of emotional wellness.
  • Peace lily: Has a naturally calm ambience due to its colour and came at the top of NASA’s air purification list.
  • Spider plant: Easy to maintain if you’re new to keeping indoor plants and excellent for removing carbon monoxide.
  • Chinese Evergreen: Chinese Evergreen cleanses formaldehyde and benzene, both of which feature in detergents and cosmetics.

What to be aware of when choosing plants

Take a realistic approach to your first indoor plant if you’re new to plant care. Try picking those that don’t require much attention, such as the Chinese Evergreen. If you own a pet, remain mindful of the fact that some are toxic to certain animals. For example, cats and lilies don’t mix. Finally, think about the plant’s prospective location and the lighting it provides. While some love light throughout the day, others quickly wither when faced with too much.

Ultimately, the must-have indoor plant you choose should complement your house and your lifestyle. When you find one with cleansing benefits, it’ll enhance your health too.
