If there is a reliable and inexpensive way to enhance your home with something that will bring us benefits more than we are aware, it is by introducing plants into the apartment.
Flowers in the house first appeared with the ancient Greeks and Romans, who were first brought into the home. The Victorians loved palm trees in pots in the interior, during the 70’s there was no home without decorative ferns, and today the modern home is unthinkable without some kind of greenery. Every time carries certain trends, even in the cultivation of plants, but the flowers in the house are much more than a passing trend.
Why is it right to have plants in the house?
If you still don’t have any flowers in the house, choosing and taking care of them is still an obstacle to going to the nearest florist or marketplace and bringing one pot to your home, we will give you some proven benefits of keeping plants in your home.
The plants purify the air. As you know, greenhouse carbon dioxide turns into oxygen, and herbs in the house are no exception. Oxygen influences every part of your body and mind, and it’s essential what kind of oxygen you breathe.
Plants help prevent disease. In nature, the transpiration process is the discharge of water (in the form of water vapor) from the surface of the plants, especially from the surface of the leaves. The same happens with the plants in the house. And while increased humidity can be a problem during sparse months, it is desirable during winter, especially if you live in the area with a dry climate.
Flowers increase productivity. Numerous studies have shown that students and workers surrounded by flowers have better results. As is the case when you are in nature surrounded by greenery, the concentration will be better, as well as memory and productivity. Research by the University of Michigan says plants can increase memory by 20 percent.
Plants stimulate creativity. In addition to plants that positively influence concentration, fresh flowers encourage creativity and responsibility. It’s always right on the desk to have a little vase with fresh herbs.
Flowers boost the mood. If you do not know how to correct your mood for someone (or yourself), try a bouquet of fresh flowers or a flower pot in a pot. If you know which scent could remind this person of the beautiful memories, choose the flowers that have that smell.
