5 Indoor Plants to Decorate Your Home

Indoor plants absorb carbon dioxide and keep oxygen flowing, purify the air by eliminating toxins, help prevent disease, relieve tension and decrease stress, create a comfortable and happier environment while eventually enabling you to function better by enhancing focus, increased attention, increased imagination, increased efficiency and enhanced overall well-being. The air purifying and filtering properties of indoor plants effectively promote a safer, happier atmosphere for work and living.

So important is the value of a safe working and living environment, that NASA has performed a study on clean air and how typical indoor plants can help achieve that. The benefits of indoor plants and their ability to remove toxic contaminants and pollutants from the air in our most populated indoor spaces make the air more breathable for us and eventually help turn a room into a living environment. So, knowing the need of indoor plants, we will see a list of 5 Indoor plants to decorate your home.

ZZ Plants

Zamioculcas zamiifolia has been around for decades, originating in Africa which is vulnerable to drought (where it thrives outside). A few decades ago, Dutch nurseries in South Africa saw the propagating potential of the plant, and began selling it around the world in 1996. With its small, attractive, dark green leaves, the ZZ plant boasts many favourable characteristics for offices and homes. 

ZZ plant tolerates neglect, is tolerant to drought, and embraces conditions of low light without throwing a fit. The waxy, smooth leaves mimic the sunlight and make rooms bright. ZZ normally grows gradually to a height and width of between two and three feet so it is not a plant mutant that easily outgrows containers. You can purchase this plant online.

String of Pearls

Under bright light the string of pearls does well. Try putting it on a sunny windowsill, or place it under a fluorescent light during daytime hours if bright sunlight is reduced. Make sure your plant has plenty of space to sprawl on. Try placing it in a hanging tub, so that tendrils will cascade down. Make sure the plant (and any dropped beads) is out of reach of kids and pets: when eaten, this succulent can be poisonous.

Keeping string of pearls at normal temperatures indoors, around 72 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for this plant, and avoid clumsy places. String of pearls is resistant to drought, as is most succulent. Place it in a pot with a drainage hole, and use the potting mix that is appropriate for cactus. Before watering again, soak the soil deeply in, then make sure to let the topsoil dry out completely.

Rubber Plant

The Rubber Plant is the simplest to manage and keep alive. That is a plant on the concrete. The smallest you see them is normally in a 6′′ sign. It generally rises from 3 inch from the ground. Rubber plant can grow in their native environment and get 60-80′ tall. It is indeed a tree. 

Like most other plants on this list, bright, indirect light is needed from the rubber plant. If the soil is dry you can just water it. The added advantage of rubber plants is that they are one of the best natural air-cleaners out there. You can buy plants online, to enjoy the fresh air, put them close to your favourite seating spot.

Asparagus Fern

Growing fern with asparagus is simple. The frilly, feathery asparagus fern plant appears soft, fluffy and beautiful, but you may be shocked when you take care of asparagus ferns to discover they have thorny spurs. But this is no excuse not to grow asparagus ferns, only wear gloves when taking care of asparagus ferns. Asparagus fern will be able to provide small flowers and berries when it is content in its location. 

Kentia Palm

The sunshine and daily watering keep the palms content indoors. While many others need high humidity (impractical as far as the interior is concerned), the kentia is fairly low maintenance. It adapts from clay to loam and acidic to alkaline to a wide range of soil. 

Kentia grown plant container in well-draining potting mix, preferably on the sandy side. After indoor plants online and developed, Kentia palm plants are relatively tolerant of drought, although they do not like being too dry, or too wet for that matter. Water even when it begins drying out the top inch or so (2.5 cm.) of soil.
