Three Plants to Consider Growing Indoors

 

You don’t have to be an avid gardener to enjoy and grow plants indoors. With the numerous health benefits, indoor plants make a great addition to any property. To help you decide which plants are safest for your pets and easiest to grow, here are some of the top plants to consider.

 

Palms

Various types of small palms have been noted to enhance air quality and even rid the air of contaminants like formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and benzene. Palms are great to incorporate into your home if you’re looking for a low maintenance plant that comes with numerous health benefits. Parlor Palms are ideal for easy growing as they thrive in low light and don’t require much space. If you want a more tropical look, try a Bamboo Palm. It does best with confined roots, so it needs to be repotted every 2 to 3 years.

 

Spider Plants

These plants are incredibly low maintenance as they can grow in indirect bright light in almost any room, in temperatures ranging from 45 to 80 degrees. They love being in pots, are not dangerous to pets, and reduce air pollution in the home. They also produce “babies” that can be potted up and given to friends and family!

 

Boston Ferns

These plants look great hung from the ceiling or draped over a taller table or bookshelf. They are incredibly easy to nourish indoors and grow relatively fast. Keep a spray bottle of water nearby and mist the leaves often to turn your fern into a natural humidifier.
