Gardening Inside with Houseplants

When it is cold outside we often bring the plants that we can inside. Indoor plants are not everyone's favorite but for those that love this informational post is for you. One thing you may want to know is that there are houseplants that may emit carbon dioxide. However, this should not be a worry for pets or humans.

Houseplants help to improve indoor air quality significantly. Indoor plants emit oxygen, humidity and negative ions. These plants can also absorb dust, mold, bacteria and allergens from the air. In addition houseplants help add beauty to the room.

Here are a few common houseplants that you may want to invest in:

  • Snake Plant can take a lot of wear and tare. It can tolerate low light and neglect as well. The snake plant helps the home by filtering toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene and toluene. Offering this plant a place with moderate to low light and water a couple times a month will keep it happy

  • The Rubber Tree is a common houseplant that enjoys moderate to bright light. The tree will filter out toxins such as formaldehyde from the indoor air. Simply watering the plant at least 1 time a week is all that is required.

  • The Philodendron is one of my favorite houseplants partly because of the heart shaped leaves and trailing vines it offers. This plant grows fast with vines that can grow to 10 feet long. Don't worry it is small in size only standing about 8" tall so will be perfect in a small space as well. The only care needed is a moderate to low light area and being watered 2 times a month.

  • A houseplant my mother loves and had many when I was a child as well is the spider plant. The noted arching green and white striped leaves make it the perfect hanging planter. The plant is resilient and easily to make more of by taking a simple cut This plant grows well in most areas with a once a week watering. 
What is your favorite house plant??
