House plants are not only pleasing to the eye - they also promote health. A green indoor jungle is the purest bio-filter available and has a really positive effect on our well-being.
Be happy with green energy dispensers
Of course, Persian violets and standard primroses do not strike everyone as great conversation partners. However, scientists agree on one thing: If you have house plants in your home and you talk to them from time to time, it does have a positive impact on your health. Your green guests clean the ambient air and relieve stress - as studies by the US space agency NASA have proven. No wonder then that more and more companies are stylishly greening up their work places. Experiments have shown that people who work in offices with plenty of plants and greenery concentrate significantly better on their work than their colleagues in bare offices.
These plants really don't like poor air!
We spend an average of 22 hours inside closed rooms. So fresh, healthy air is particularly beneficial. A wide variety of house plants can provide a natural healthy climate at little cost. Firstly, they increase the humidity in the air through evaporation via their leaves, an effect which makes itself felt during hot spells in particular. Some of them are also able to reduce harmful substances given off by paint, adhesives or plywood.
Spider plants, weeping figs and umbrella plants are avid destroyers of formaldehyde. Ivy, dragon trees, mother-in-law's tongue and golden pothos vines filter benzene from the air whilst lady palms reduce ammonia and peace lilies convert acetone into a non-toxic substance. Gerberas, chrysanthemums, azaleas and poinsettias provide welcome blurs of colour with their abundant flowers and also have a bio-filter effect. To achieve an adequate air filtration effect, you should make your surroundings into an abundant indoor oasis. One or two plants alone will not be prove a match for the vapours expelled by computers, printers and paints.
