why you need a houseplant...or two

1. Houseplants filter the air you breath-

Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen throughout the day making your home a healthier environment, naturally.

 

2. Houseplants help make you happy-

Living in Colorado can cause seasonal depression as the days get shorter and temperatures drop. Having something green and alive in your house can help take the edge off the winter time blues.

 

3. Houseplants add life to a room-

If your house seems a little too neutral, houseplants can add a touch of green that can instantly take a room from average to amazing.

 

4. Houseplants help you focus-

A study at The Royal College of Agriculture in Circencester, England, found that students demonstrate 70 percent greater attentiveness when they’re taught in rooms containing plants. In the same study, attendance was also higher for lectures given in classrooms with plants.

 

5. Houseplants are fun-

Exotic varieties that would die over-night outside in Colorado can thrive indoors. Citrus, palms, philodendron and so much more will be quite happy living in a climate controlled indoor environment.

how many houseplants do I need?

  • To improve health and reduce fatigue and stress, place one large plant (8-inch diameter pot or larger) every 129 square feet. In office or classroom settings, position plants so each person has greenery in view.

  • To purify air, use 15 to 18 plants in 6- to 8-inch diameter pots for an 1,800-square-foot house. That’s roughly one larger plant every 100 square feet. Achieve similar results with two smaller plants (4- to 5-inch pots).
