In this blog we talk about the top three plants we recommend to those wanting to purify and filter the air within their home or office space!
The main reasons people across the world incorporate indoor plants to their home are usually to:
Brighten their home with some colour;
Complement the decor of their home; or,
Bring a calming energy into their home for their mental health.
However, one of the top reasons (and a very important one) most of us forget, is that indoor plants help to purify and filter the air around us.
Just as trees and shrubs outside take in the bad air and breath out the good, indoor plants do the same!
And because indoor plants generally may be in a captured area like a lounge room, kitchen or bedroom, the benefit is even greater. We would all be surprised to truly discover the quantity and variety of air pollutants that may be found in our homes, and plants are amazing at helping to remove these pollutants from the air around us.
See below for our top three pick of plants that are not only great at improving the air quality in homes, but also look great too!
1. Cascade Palm One of the best for taking the nasties out of the air, and they are also one of the toughest indoor palms! They are also excellent humidifiers. Cascade palms are excellent humidifiers, and will grow to approximately 2 meters, making them ideal for a spot inside with plenty of light.
2. Giant Strelitzia (Giant Bird of Paradise) If you want a plant that makes a statement, this is it. Huge leaves that purify the air and add the tropics to our homes. These plants make the perfect feature for large rooms, patios or verandas. They can be trimmed up neat and sparse for a popular minimalist effect.
3. Peace Lily
These beauties are a well-know favourite for the coffee table, kitchen bench, well-lit bathroom etc. They have lovely white flowers which are a bonus on this bushy plant. Peace Lilies can be a great starting plant for beginners with their tough easy-going nature.
So, there you have it, indoor plants, a must for every home! If you are looking to bring a new plant home with you, check out our range at our Retail Garden Centre in Wongawallan Gold Coast, QLD today!
