Grow the right plant

It is always nice to grow plants in the apartment so that we also have a green corner at home, which allows us to maintain a closer connection with nature . If we then consider that houseplants are not just for decoration but also have many health benefits, the deal is done.

Many people spend most of their time at home or at work. In this sense, houseplants help reduce the amount of polluted indoor air , contaminated by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which proliferate in closed environments. VOCs can cause headaches, nausea, and painful or itchy eyes, affecting health , mood , and productivity . In this sense , plants absorb pollutants and emit oxygen , refreshing the air we breathe. The NASA Clean Air study found that plants remove up to 87% of VOCs every 24 hours. A study by the Agricultural University of Norway, however, found that the presence of indoor plants reduces the incidence of dry skin, colds and sore throats. Indoor plants have also been found to improve concentration and productivity levels and reduce stress .


So, which plants should we choose to have a healthy and happy environment? We have drawn up a small list of the most suitable plants in every corner of our home.

For the bedroom

Orchids and succulents absorb CO2 and in the process release oxygen during the night, freshening the air while we sleep. Jasmine is another plant widely used in the bedroom; It has been shown to reduce anxiety levels, improving the quality of sleep.

For the kitchen

Bamboo is part of NASA's list of the best air purifying plants. Particularly advanced from this point of view, they allow the air to be purified from benzene that can accumulate during the use of cooking gas.

For the bathroom

The spathiphyllum or also spoon plant due to the characteristic shape of the floral spathe, adds an elegant touch to the bathroom and helps to remove any mold from the air, reducing the likelihood of humidity forming. Sansevieria (or snake plant ) is another interesting option for the bathroom, suitable for filtering formaldehyde, common in cleaning products, toilet paper, fabrics and personal care products.

For the laundry

Gerbera is a genus of herbaceous plants native to Africa. Similar to the daisy in appearance, it is ideal for removing trichlorethylene, a substance present in washing machines and which develops during dry cleaning. However, it requires a lot of light, at least 6 hours a day.

For any other space

The Aglaonema plant, also called Chinese evergreen , is known for its ease of cultivation, thrives in low light and humid air, and helps filter a variety of pollutants and toxins from the air.

These are the most common houseplants suitable for more or less bright environments in the home, office or shop . Growing indoors can turn into an easy and fun art . Whatever the size of your home or time available, houseplants are a great way to bring some low-maintenance greenery into your life. They are lush , improve air quality and well-being ; taking care of it is a wonderful hobby for adults and children.
