Houseplants will keep you healthier and happier. Multiple studies have found that indoor plants can offer psychological and physical health benefits.
The environment the plant is in indoors will determine whether the plant will have the opportunity to thrive and flourish. The "secret" to successfully caring for indoor plants is to mimic the same conditions as their natural habitat. Adequate light is the most important environmental factor in successfully growing plants in our homes.
Indoor plants are beautiful to look at and they can have a significant, positive impact on our health. Houseplants improve indoor air quality by adding oxygen and humidity to the air in our homes and offices. NASA scientists have found that many also remove harmful gases such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from indoor air.
