Indoor Plants, Hanging Baskets, and Dish Gardens
(Containers may vary due to season and availability)
Did you know NASA completed extensive studies on which indoor plants purify air?
Indoor plants are effective at removing many air impurities. The results from the studies suggest that certain common indoor plants may provide a natural way of removing toxic agents such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air, helping neutralize the effects of sick building syndrome. One of the best plants – and one we sell often – for improving air quality is the Peace lily.
This great indoor plant does well in Colorado and provide years of enjoyment with little care. Plant baskets are also a favorite indoor plant arrangement and great alternative to flowers. I love working with Ivy, ferns, monkey grass and flowering lilies to create a unique plant basket.
It is no secret that indoor plants create a relaxing atmosphere. Academic studies have even shown that indoor plants in hospital rooms and home environments reduce stress. Studies in Texas, Washington State, and England showed that employees in environments with plants were 12 percent more productive than those not exposed to interior plants. Visual exposure to plants helped to reduce blood pressure, and to lessen stress within five minutes. Perhaps some of this arises from the reduction in office noise with the use of plants, another factor well-documented in studies. For instance, a small indoor plant hedge around a workspace can reduce noise by five decibels.
