Plants, Glorious Plants
Have you ever noticed that when you’re feeling a little low, a simple walk outdoors can change your mood completely? Nature has a special way of calming and reducing feelings of stress or tiredness.
There have been many studies that have shown the benefits of being amongst nature and how plants can positively affect your self esteem, along with your motivation, creativity and general wellbeing.
So let’s bring all of that positive energy inside!
Indoor plants not only have incredible positive affects on us, but they also help clean the air inside our lovely homes. Whilst they produce oxygen, they also absorb harmful toxins, breaking them down into by-products and storing them in their soil to later use as food – clever right?
With pollution on the rise, it is more important than ever to have plants around us.
On top of all of these health benefits, they are beautiful to look at and really can ‘make a room’ – they go with everything after all!
We have made a list of 5 ‘easy to grow’ and ‘tough to kill’ plants that are great for any beginner on the start of their plant collection journey, you WILL get addicted once you start.
Cacti & Succulents – with so many varieties to choose from, these slow growing plants are a great place to start. They thrive best with bright light and little water. They really can survive with little attention so go grab yourself a Cacti.
Spider Plants – these long stemmed beauties are not overly fussed about water, temperature or light, they easily grow in baskets or table tops.
Dracaena Species – tolerate a wide range of conditions, in the summer they do like to be watered occasionally but in the winter they can be left alone.
Golden Pothos Vine – fast growers in pots or a basket and love to trail down around their surroundings with minimal care.
Lucky Bamboo – they make a wonderful house plant and are tough as anything. They can survive poor air quality, bad lighting and sporadic watering. It is said that they bring good luck and energy to your home too.
