House Plants


20 November


Do you think house plants are popular just because they look nice?

They are actually beneficial for more than just decoration, and Wheeler Gardens has a number of options if you are looking to spruce up your home, while simultaneously reaping the benefits.

Benefits of House Plants

  • Increase and filter oxygen: House plants can increase the oxygen levels in your home and also purify the air. They are constantly removing toxins, which could range from formaldehyde to cigarette smoke. House plants work hard to protect you!
  • Improve health: House plants can improve your health in a number of ways. In addition to fresh oxygen, they release water vapor into the air, consequently increasing humidity. This can help with respiratory problems and can help reduce the number of colds, help alleviate sore throats, and even help prevent dry skin. Furthermore, people recover from illness faster when plants are present, and people working in offices get sick less often when plants are around.
How Many Plants?

If you are looking to purify the air in your home, then you should aim to have one plant for every 100 square feet in your home.

What Plants Should I Get?

Some beneficial house plants include the dragon tree, peace lily, and Boston fern. House plants vary in what they do. For example, the Boston fern humidifies the air, while the peace lily works to remove mold from the air. You should consider investing in a variety of plants in order to reap the entire spectrum of benefits they offer.
