Make your own happy jungle

  • 3 min read

Plants, they occur in every house and I can really only mention the advantages of these nice atmosphere makers in your home. Although I don't have such green fingers and sometimes one of them dies, the care is generally good for me and if you choose the right plants you sometimes don't have to do much about it.

The benefits of the houseplant

First let's take a look at the benefits of the houseplant . Because that's a pretty nice list:

  • They make you happier . You bring the outside in and because you generally spend more time inside than outside, you just turn it into a jungle inside. You can also relax while taking care of your plants and of course talk to them a lot because it works.
  • They produce oxygen . Plants fill your living room, bathroom, bedroom or wherever your plant is with air, because they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.
  • They keep the air healthy . Plants also clean the air. Toxic substances such as formaldehyde, trichlorethylene, xylene, benzene, ammonia and toluene that hang in the air and which we often do not know (nor know by name) turn plants into clean substances.
  • They keep you focused . If you are easily distracted, a plant nearby is ideal, because it helps with your concentration.
  • They keep you healthy . Because plants are natural humidifiers, it can help with sore throats, coughs and a stuffy nose.
  • They make sure you sleep better, so quickly put a few plants in your bedroom. Because they emit aromatic substances and convert oxygen, you are in dreamland in no time. And especially if you put lavender, because this plant is known for its coumarins that help you sleep better.
  • They lower blood pressure . A study from Kansas State University shows that patients who came out of surgery recovered faster if they had flowers and plants in their room, and as a result, they also had lower blood pressure.

Ideal plants

If you live in a small house, air plants are the ideal plants. Even if you really don't have green fingers, you really have to do your best to let these plants die. They are the Tillandsias that I came across at Airplantshop . What nice plants they sell here! Well actually it is more the decoration of the plants. The Tillandsia needs little care. A little water once or twice a week, some light and air and a little love and your plants will grow luxuriantly.

I immediately fell in love with the jellyfish (sea urchin) trio. With their beautiful sea urchin shell they look very cute and you can decorate them in many ways. They hang nicely on a lamp, but they also look very nice in a large vase hanging from a branch.

The standing Tillandsia in shell are supplied in threes and look great in your living room, but they are also ideal to brighten up your workplace.

So if you can also use some luck, health and concentration, go shopping for plants and turn your living room into a cozy jungle.
