The value of indoor plants is far more than simply being pleasant to look at. Research shows they benefit both people and buildings.

Indoor plants:

  • increase health, happiness, vitality, prosperity, productivity, oxygen and Chi.
  • improve humidity.
  • help regulate air temperature.
  • help reduce Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). SBS is a combination of illnesses linked to a person’s workplace or home. Most SBS is caused by bad quality indoor air.
  • clean the air. Plants can remove many toxins from the air, such as carbon monoxide, ammonia and formaldehyde.
  • reduce background noise.
  • add colour and beauty to a space.
  • boost air flow between rooms and in ‘dead’ spaces (please give them some light to survive).
  • disguise corners and other sharp lines that hinder the flow of Chi.

Take good care of your plants, talk to them regularly and play some baroque music!

AVOID plants in bedrooms.
