Household plants can provide much-needed life to any room, and more and more millennia choose household plants for pets and children. The obsession of the millennial household is real and is largely based on the fact that many of us are doomed to be tenants in urban environments, so our exposure to nature must be taken indoors. But if you live in the suburbs, the country or the city, a previously afflicted and uninspired space can be instantly spruced up by planting an interesting household.
But potted plants are not just for decor, they can have health benefits as well. Science says the addition of home vegetables can reduce stress and anxiety, damp a dry apartment, help in depression, and, according to NASA, houseplants can of course clean your air. Poorly ventilated apartments can be full of stagnant air and pollution that can lead to what NASA and EPA refer to as hospital building syndrome. Sickness syndrome can sound strange clinically, but the real effects of air pollution can make life difficult (and rough, with cold-like symptoms).
NASA reports that up to 30 percent of all newly remodeled spaces and many spaces with mechanical ventilation have indoor pollution problems. They recommend the same approach as when they were tasked with clearing the air in spacecrafted houseplants!
Below are nine potted plants you should consider buying for your home to increase air quality and standard quality of life.
