This month marks some of the coldest days of winter. Winds blow strong, and it is still dark much too early. How can houseplants make us feel better in winter?
Scientists say that just being around houseplants can boost our moods, reduce stress, improve concentration, help us sleep better and relieve aches and pains. Experts believe humans are hard-wired to connect with nature in all sorts of ways, which include caring for indoor plants.
One of the favorite house plants is the low maintenance snake plant. It is an evergreen with tall sword-shaped leaves that thrives in dry conditions and indoor temperatures that range from 40 to 80 degrees. NASA researchers agree when it comes to airborne toxins, it is one of the top plants for improving indoor air quality. The snake plant releases fresh oxygen at night, which makes it a great indoor plant.
The snake plant is just one of a large variety on indoor plants available that add to our health and wellbeing.
