Lush green plants add a calm and fresh vibe to your home or office. If you have ever stepped foot in a greenhouse, you know that being close to greenery can immediately make you feel more at ease with your surroundings.

Plants promote less stress, more productivity, and even improve the air quality! Here are three ways to bring beneficial plants into your home:

Hanging Baskets
With more people recognizing the benefits of having plants in the home, but not wanting to sacrifice floor or counter space for them, hanging baskets make the perfect solution.

They can create an interesting décor statement while naturally bringing charm and beauty to the space. Depending on the light, these indoor plants work well in hangers: English Ivy, Burro’s Tail, Spider Plant, Arrowhead Vine, Pothos, and Boston Ferns.

It is not surprising that succulents have become some of the most sought-after houseplants around. They are easy to care for and are fun to collect because they grow in an astonishingly large number of varieties.

Floor Plants
Larger plants can be used as a statement piece in a room. In the practice of feng shui, plants are considered one of the most effective cures for areas in the home that need help. You can boost any unused space with a bright, vibrant floor plant.

Plants can help us to breathe clearer, focus, and reduce anxiety as they work to remove toxins from the air such as benzene and formaldehyde. Here are some great air-filtering plants: Aglaonema, Anthurium, Rhapis Palm, Dracaena, English Ivy, Sansevieria, and Peace Lilies.
