House plants are highly valuable in our indoor environment. Plants provide a sanctuary and purify the air, reduce noise, and keep the house smell good.
The houseplants that do not need any special care live almost all year round in a sheltered area away from the kitchen area, cooking area, or the dining area. They can be placed almost anywhere within the home to help with the purification of the air. The best place to place the houseplants is around the kitchen, on a balcony in the family room, near the dining area, or in the bathroom.
The plants will also help to keep the general air quality of the room even. For example, if the room is filled with a lot of cooking odors, the houseplants will tend to trap the odors and keep them contained. Another good thing about the houseplants is that they absorb excess humidity and allow the air to breathe better.
By using a piece of mesh material over the fan in the room you can keep the air that comes out of the door to be cooler and help reduce the amount of humidity that is entering the room. This will help to give the room a fresher and cleaner smell.
The plants also absorb the heat from the sun. If there is the sun shining directly on the windows or the air vents, the plants will absorb this heat and retain it inside the house. The heat in the air then gets transferred to the plants. This heat will be released when the plants are being pruned.
Another thing to consider houseplants is the amount of time you plan to spend outside. Most houseplants can survive anywhere from six to ten hours of direct sunlight daily. There are some plants that will grow best during a ten-hour period of sunlight. These are plants like comfrey and Chinese hibiscus. If you live in an area where the ground plants can get the majority of their water from the rain, then this may be a concern for you. If you have large rocks around your yard or plant bed, these plants may get drowned in the rain. If you have ever lost a plant or a flower from a flood or dry ground, you know how much water-absorbing material there is in the ground.
In the same vein, sand beds also have their limitations. The bigger the sand bed, the more saturated the soil is, and the more it could take up.
When it comes to houseplants, the more surface area the plant has, the more nutrients it will consume. So, if you have little to no room to put your plant in, don’t worry. Just use your imagination and plant a few good houseplants in your spare room.
Many people who have used an air purifier in the past, have found that their houseplants perform better with one. When you have a houseplant that needs to be exposed to pollutants in the air, it will be able to handle it and improve its quality of life.
When you choose to go with an air purifier, make sure that it uses a dual filtration system to clean the air purifier itself. Some newer models that are available now use the HEPA method. This type of system purifies both the air in the plant, making it easier for the plant to breathe and better for the atmosphere in the house.
