Did you know that indoor plants don’t just look nice, they bring a host of health benefits too? Plants remove volatile compounds from the air including ozone and carbon dioxide, turning CO2 into oxygen, improving indoor air quality. Plus they’re mood boosters, plants confer positive changes in the brain’s electrical activity, muscle tension, and heart activity. They also help increase energy levels and work performance due to the positive state of mind they induce simply by being in the same room.
So far so good right? But, what if you’re lacking in the green thumb department? If you’re the type of person who only has to look at a plant to kill it, these are the plants for you.
RUBBER FIG – FICUS ELASTICA
Rubber plants are not only super hardy, they also rank high on the list of house plants that eliminate toxins from your home. A little water, the occasional spritz of water on the leaves and wipe with a cloth every few months, these babies will give you all the love you need for very little in return.
SPIDER PLANT – CHLOROPHYTUM COMOSUM
This pretty hanging plant is awesome at removing carbon monoxide from the air, they’re also perfect for bathrooms because they like humidity. A weekly water is all that’s needed to keep the spider plant alive.
CORN PLANT – DRACAENA MASSANGEANA
The corn plant are excellent air purifiers. A small weekly water is sufficient to keep them happy and they grow slowly, so no need to re-pot for several years. If your house is prone to dust, the leaves will need a wipe down with a damp cloth every 2-3 months.
Succulents can be beautiful and hardy. They need the least amount of water of any indoor plants. Ideal if you’re the forgetful type. They are so hardy that you can drop them and shatter the entire plant then just replant the leaves in a little soil. They are virtually kill proof.
