10 House Plants That Look Great Indoors

Indoor foliage and flowering plants actively work to purify home and office environments. These plants decrease that amount of indoor air pollution by reducing concentrations of formaldehyde and other volatile organic chemicals. Interiors with plants have 50% to 60% fewer airborne microorganisms and 20% less dust than interiors without plants; moreover plants are able to adjust transpiration rates stabilizing relative humidity to levels ideal for human health and comfort. Research also indicates plants reduce workplace stress, enhance productivity, and cut down sick leave expenses. Bring plants into your home and office and experience the benefits of a clean, well-oxygenated environment. Most foliage plants purify the air during the day; by adding Bromeliads, Orchids, and Cactus, this process continues during the night.

Plants are like the lungs or kidneys of a building – they balance humidity levels. Many plants, especially broad-leaved varieties, release moisture into the air through evaporation of the moisture in their leaves.People are more likely to develop viral infections when humidity levels are too low, and when humidity is too high we are vulnerable to eye and fungal diseases. The underside of leaves help keep humidity within the optimal range. Indoor plants can reduce fatigue, coughs, sore throats and cold-related illnesses by more than 30 per cent.
