As we move indoors for the winter months it’s time to give a nod to those hardworking indoor plants that are more than just a “pretty face” in the living room or kitchen. They work hard to clean indoor air from volatile organic compounds. From health benefits to improving concentration, indoor houseplants are easy on the eyes, mind, body and spirit. Orchids, ferns, succulents, palms, spider plants and many more remove harmful compounds frequently found in homes and offices.
As indoor technology becomes more sophisticated, it’s more important than ever to stay connected with nature and the outdoors. Mixing indoor planted containers with blooms, foliage, and edibles are so encouraged. Imagine cutting some salad greens for your evening dinner from that floral mix container in the kitchen window! Containers brimming with fragrant herbs like basil, rosemary, or thyme are attractive and can’t be beat for an aromatic addition. For indoor blooms, orchids can’t be beat. These colorful and exotic plants blend with any décor. What a conversation piece too!
