Plants in your bedroom can improve air quality and help you get a better night’s sleep!
Who knew?… It seems NASA scientists did.
According to studies, some varieties of plants not only produce additional oxygen for your room, they also reduce the quantity of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and toxins like benzene and formaldehyde in the air. Combined with the added oxygen they produce, those plants help you breathe better by improving the air quality.
Another plus for plants in your bedroom is they add a sense of calmness. We know that plants are an integral part of our natural environment, time spent in the garden or the bush is time spent regenerating.
While we can’t always escape to the bush, we can bring the
bush into the house on a smaller scale, why not into the bedroom?
Like plants in any part of the house, they need to be safe for animals and children who might interact with/ingest them. Some varieties need to be placed near natural light to thrive, while others do well in low light positions.
So there’s a plant to suit your bedroom. If your green thumb hasn’t yet revealed itself, don’t worry, plants like snake plants aka mother-inlaws-tongue need little attention and can go weeks without water.
