Did you know that indoor plants help to clean the air? With us all spending so much more time at home, it can start to feel stuffy. Bringing the outdoors in is a great way to liven up your home space and freshen up the air at the same time.

Tips on what indoor plants to choose

  • Peace lilies:

Keep your air clean by using peace lilies as a natural filter. This plant helps to clean and purify the air. Try to keep your peace lilies in a bright spot indoors that is away from direct sunlight. This plant should only be watered when the soil is completely dry, making it a fairly low maintenance plant.

  • Ferns:

Ferns are luscious plants that enjoy a lot of sunlight and water. Consistently water this plant to keep the leaves from growing brown.

  • Succulents:

Succulents have thick leaves that help to retain water, which is great if you don’t have the time (or just forget!) to water them. You can create a variety of different mini indoor gardens in glass jars and bowls. To keep your succulents alive, give them plenty of light but try not to put them into direct sunlight as their leaves can burn. Best practice is to place them into free-draining potting soil. Let the soil become completely dry before watering and never let the succulents sit in water.

  • Rubber plants:

These plants are quickly becoming a trendy household decor item. You can get a variety of different types of rubber plants and whichever one you get, be sure to keep them in a light spot in the house. This plant only needs to be watered when the soil is completely dry - there’s a chance it can get root rot if it is too moist. 

  • Aloe Vera:

We’ve all heard about the benefits of aloe vera. This plant needs a bright, sunny spot and very little water making it an easy one to look after.
