The power of plants in your home

23 September 2021

It is the interaction and attention our plants need from us that creates this feeling of well-being, that feel good factor.

Now, is it because for many of us our regular lifestyle was changed and we re-focused on the home during the lockdown, or is it something that has been gradually trending in the millennials showing off their growing collection of potted friends on social media? Not since the 1970s has the houseplant been so popular.

Houseplants have been keeping us company for a long time dating back thousands of years and it is a great way to bring nature a little bit closer. Just as caring for plants big and small in the garden or nurturing them in the greenhouse brings us comfort and a feeling of relaxation, the same can be said for tending indoor plants.

It is the interaction and attention our plants need from us that creates this feeling of well-being, that feel good factor. We enjoy looking and marvelling at their beauty and watching them grow. Caring for our plants is a welcomed distraction from our computers and all things technical that absorb so much of our time. The routine of tending to our plants and providing them with the best of situations to encourage them to grow is therapeutic and rewarding.

The right plant in the right place can really enhance a room. The personality of the plant makes a space. There is a wonderful selection of houseplants out there to choose from, from the large leafed and jungle-like to the intriguing and fun succulents, cacti and the extraordinary air plants. 

The Fishbone Cactus is one such succulent with its interesting leaves and is sure to be a point of interest on any windowsill. Valued for its foliage, this one is a structural gem.

If you are looking for something that is not only relatively easy to maintain, but will give you lots of entertainment, too, then have a look at the amazing Hanging Jellyfish Air Plant. These are so much fun - your friends will all want one, or two! The air plant is housed inside a sea urchin’s shell. Hung from the loop on the shell they transform into jellyfish-like decorations - excellent for dangling in the bathroom.

The Air Plant Sputnik (great name), is another clever arrangement using an air plant and a sea urchin shell for a really cute looking combination.

If you are a lover of the more large and leafy houseplants then the innovative Plant Tower, with its industrial vibe, will help you to create a wonderfully contemporary, space-saving setting for them. The grid design and the four moveable waterproof pots allow the plants to be artistically arranged with ease.
