Have you noticed that all your friends can’t stop talking about their plants lately? Or are you the green thumb of your group? Well, you’re not alone. While primarily driven by millennials, houseplant ownership has risen significantly in the past few years.
Whether being a “plant parent” was a new hobby you picked up in quarantine or to simply breathe some life and style into your home, there are a number of reasons why you should consider taking on plant ownership.
Why should you get houseplants?
The obvious benefit to owning houseplants is that they beautify your home. Whether you want to go all out and turn your home into a lush boho chic escape or you want to keep it simple, plants can fit into any style. It can be a great way to bring in small accents of color, with flowering plants or a fun planter.
Bringing plants into your home can also improve your quality of living. Studies show that a plant in your home office can lower stress and anxiety while working. Even outside of work hours, taking care of plants can be a calming experience. Plus, there’s nothing like watching a plant thrive and grow under your care. If you have asthma, a dust allergy, or just rather breathe in cleaner air, various plant species can purify the air in your home by removing harmful toxins.
