I love plants. They bring a fresh pop of color to any living space and also a bit of nature indoors. I walked around my house and counted a total of 21 pots with greenery. It got me to thinking of the health benefits so I did some research and here's what I found out:
If you think you want to try some plants in your house, start off small with some easy to grow ones such as spider plants, ivy, or philodendrons. Make sure you water them when the soil is dry to the touch (every 2 weeks or so in the winter). If you need a reminder to water, just schedule it on your calendar.
To reap the above benefits, experts recommend you have 1 large plant (8 inch diameter pot) for every 100 square feet of your house. That may seem like a lot but over time you will find your collection of plants grows. I have some that are over 20 years old!!! Happy planting.
