Why do people grow flowers?


All plants produce oxygen and eliminate carbon dioxide, but did you know that some plants purify the air?

Plants such as lily and spider plant are easy to maintain. These flowers can remove a variety of toxins such as ammonia and Formaldehyde. We will introduce you more examples of air purifiers plants.


Smog is not the only concern about air quality in cities. Indoor air pollution is also common. It therefore leads to Sick building syndrome. In this case, all residents of the building have symptoms. The most common cause of this condition is usually the problems with heating and air conditioning. Other factors include emissions from building materials used in buildings, volatile organic compounds, mildew, poor ozone removal (byproducts of office equipment), industrial chemicals, and adverse air conditioning. According to the University of Technology Sydney, only between two and three plants can significantly reduce this risk factor.

The local food movement

It is a movement that encourages people to grow their own food. By bringing farms closer to downtown where more food is sent for consumption, we can reduce food waste. Also, reduce the impacts of food production and consumption such as greenhouse gases by bringing food resources closer to home.

Reconciliation with nature

Aside from the benefits of growing plants for health, there are also good psychological benefits. Plants convey the positive, calming effects of nature to your home.

In fact, a study at the University of Michigan found that they increase productivity, creativity, cognitive performance, and memory retention. Flowers are especially useful for improving mood, which is why gardening is nowadays used as a complementary treatment for patients with dementia, schizophrenia, and depression.

Medicinal value

Cultivating some plants may save you a lot in the long run. Not only have you produced the vegetables you need, but you can also take advantage of some of the medicinal properties of the plants.

For example, grow common chicory and chamomile and by brew them, boost your immune system, use peppermint and lavender oil as a soothing and respiratory treatment, etc. Aloe vera can be used in a variety of beauty masks use.


Plants absorb carbon

As the plants grow, air quality in the world increases. According to studies at the University of Sydney, home plants alone reduce about 10 percent of CO2 in the air, but plants such as Bambusoideae consume more carbon dioxide.

Conservation of biodiversity in the region

Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators around the world in terms of distance they have problems together. Create the right space for them through flowering plants outdoors makes you a conservative citizen!

It is easier to grow home plants than you think!

Many people are afraid of the inability to grow plants, but if you choose the right plants for your space, gardening indoors and outdoors is actually very comfortable and easy. In addition, it's one of the cheapest ways you can decorate your space and make it a worthwhile image.


They can be pretty house decors

Nothing says welcome more than a beautiful hanging plant at your front entrance. Most indoor plants require little attention; they don’t need much watering, trimming or fertilizing unlike your garden plants. They can also be placed in decorative containers to create dish gardens, and terrariums. Placing potted plants on various corners of your home’s room can also add to the cool and fresh ambience of the area. Now you can fill any awkward space and turn it into a mini green paradise!

They improve wellbeing

It goes without saying that a house with plants looks more refreshing than one without. I mean if I was to pick a house to spend my vacation in – I’d pick a cabin with the most flowers and indoor plants around its vicinity. Aside from how its beauty can make you feel happy, culturally, plants are known to have a strong spiritual link with us. Plants are even part of some of our major life events, like weddings and funerals.

Studies also found that patients in hospitals who face garden views had greater chances of recovering more than those who were facing a wall. The presence of plants contributes to the general feeling of wellbeing, making people happier and optimistic about life.

How to water houseplants correctly?


Water your plants once a week. Some plants require less amount (such as cacti) but few need more. Excessive water can actually damage the roots and cause them to spoil. So you need to know the plants properly for watering.

Replace pots and soil every now and then

After a while, your soil becomes nutrient-free. You can postpone this by adding compost to your soil and using rich soil. However, after a while the bacteria grow in the soil of the pot and you have to change the soil and rinse the pot.

In addition, most plants grow very fast and require more space. Just use old pots for plants you have just purchased.

Avoid insects by keeping the soil healthy and fertile

Sometimes insects attack plants especially domestic plants which fall prey to aphids, spider mites, etc., but they are easy to prevent and do not need chemicals to deal with them, just to keep your plants healthy.

Adding vermicompost solves this problem more easily. Vermicompost not only makes them healthy but also acts as a natural insect repellent on its own!
