Indoor Plants: Decor That Can Keep You Healthy

by | Jul 24, 2012 | Practical Suggestions | 0 comments

Are you keeping plants in your home or office? If not, you might want to consider adding a few indoor plants to your decor. For some time, health experts have said that having indoor plants filters out the bad things in the air making them beneficial to our health. A very recent study, however, has taken this claim a step further claiming that indoor plants can reduce formaldehyde levels, formaldehyde being a toxic gas found in carpet and building materials that is released in the air and can cause allergies, asthma, and headaches.

Two of our favorite, easy-to care for plants here at the office are Mother-In-Law’s Tongue and the Jade Plant. Mother-in-Law’s Tongue looks great in a pot, and lives for years, even without sunlight. You can find this common plant at any garden store that sells indoor plants.

Our other favorite, the tropical-looking Jade Plant hardly ever needs watering. These guys are also really common and easy to find.
