Nothing adds more beauty and comfort to our homes and offices than the lush flowers and foliage of indoor plants. Bringing plants into your home is aesthetically pleasing and offers significant health benefits as well! Read on to find out just some of the science-backed perks of these wonderful and life-enhancing beauties.
THE BENEFITS OF INDOOR PLANTS1. Indoor Plants May Help Reduce Stress Levels
A study published in the Journal of Physiological Anthropology found that plants in your home or office can make you feel more comfortable, soothed and natural. For an extra dose of serenity check out our very own Beach Garden.2. Real Plants Can Sharpen Your Attention
In a recent study, researchers found that the brain scans of students who studied with real, live plants in the classroom were more attentive and better able to concentrate than students with either a fake plant, a real one, a photograph of a plant or no plant at all.3. Working With Plants Can Be Therapeutic
For people experiencing the symptoms of mental illness, indoor gardening can be helpful. Researchers have used horticultural therapy to increase feelings of well-being among people with depression, anxiety, dementia and other conditions.4. Plants May Help You Recover from Illness Faster
Being able to look at plants and flowers may speed your recovery from an illness, injury or surgery according to the latest research. Do you know someone who is in recovery? Our Loving Thoughts Dish Garden is a great gift for a friend or family member who is healing.5. Plants May Boost Your Productivity
Multiple studies have found that plants in the workspace increase both productivity and creativity. Pick your favorite, or stock up on several, from our beautiful Plant Collection.6. Plants Improve the Quality of Indoor Air
Scientific support for phytoremediation (that’s the word for plants scrubbing contaminants from the air) was confirmed with a NASA study conducted in the 1980s. Indoor plants literally help you breathe easier!
HOW TO CARE FOR INDOOR PLANTS
It's important (but not always easy) to keep your plants healthy and happy. Remember to always read the plant care tag for instructions on how to best take care of your particular plant. It's also important to educate yourself on which plants are safe for your pets.
WE LOVE OUR PLANTS
Our team at Floral Design by Heidi can admittedly be a little obsessed with our indoor plants. We name them, we talk to them, we even play music for them. Check out this photo gallery of our personal favorites as well as a few creative ways we show extra love.
LISTEN: Our plants love this Spotify Playlist Music for Plants
READ: If you’re as fascinated as we are by the superpowers of plants, we recommend reading The Secret Life of Plants
TALK: Many people name their plants, we go a step further by giving one of our plants our name, so when we say nice things to them we’re adding in a little self-care.
