You may ask what are the benefits exactly. Below is a short summary of a few.

Beautification of the Home or Building – In addition to the multitude of health benefits plants offer, they also create elegant and wonderful beauty to any home. There are numerous uses for indoor plants. Depending on the areas to be decorated, the use of different plants can create a more uniform and warm feel.

Home Air Purification – There are multiple studies but reference is based on a study in 2009 conducted by the University of Technology in Sydney Australia. This team found that it was highly probable houseplants absorbed toxins in the air. The science behind how the plants are able to do this is related to their biological processes.

The CDC has reported that as many as 8 percent of all Americans suffer from allergies. Houseplants do not release much if any pollen and in fact act as natural filters to collect allergens and dust. In addition, plants produce oxygen through photosynthesis which is what we breath to survive.

Plants act as sponges to gather all of the bad pollutants in the air. Most of us do not think about pollutants in our homes but they are present. Things like carpet, paint and furniture emit toxins.

Health and Mental Wellness  – Researchers at Kansas State University reported studies that show patients recover quicker when their hospital rooms have plants in them. In addition, these patients tend to have lower heart rates, blood pressure, less fatigue and anxiety. Consequently the patients are released from the hospitals sooner.

Further, researchers in other countries have found evidence in their studies that the overall health of individuals in office buildings and classrooms is also improved by the presence of plants.  Benefits identified include decreases in fatigue, colds, headaches, coughs, sore throats and flu like symptoms.

Commercial Building Air Purification – It stands to reason that not just a residential home can benefit from indoor plants. It has been shown that  hospitals and office buildings are great places for plants also.
