What is it about being surrounded by greenery that just makes things feel cleaner and fresher, whether or not, the plants purify the air?

House plants are unpopular and relegated home decoration that is usually not considered when setting up the home. But this gift of nature spruce up the place, giving that finishing touch when all is set and done.

A study claims that you’d need to have about 93 of them to truly notice a meaningful change. Despite conflicting views on how houseplants purify the air of the home, it is a win-win as a beautifier.

Here are the top five(5) home plants to consider when making your next move or thinking of redecorating your precious space:

Swiss Cheese
This plant is known by its descriptive name. Swiss cheese plant is versatile enough to fit any space and makes a magnificent statement with its rich green leaves and characteristic holes. Since it is a tropical understorey plant, shade is more important than water.

Pothos

The Marble Queen Pothos is one of the easiest indoor plants to grow. Its lovely heart-shaped leaves and spreading vines will simply fill your plant rack with beauty. This very low-maintenance species is good for novices or anyone who is lax with their plant care because it can grow in low-light conditions and with less-than-optimal watering habits.

Parlour palm

The parlour palm is a popular tropical option since it can effectively remove the pollutants, benzene and trichloroethylene, that are frequently disseminated by furniture off-gas. It just needs to be watered once every one to two weeks and thrives in indirect to low light conditions. You don’t have to fret about keeping the plant locked up and away from your pets because it is also pet-friendly.

Spider plant

Spider plants are nice to have about the house despite their moniker. They come in a variety of designs. Interestingly, when they want to water they do not hesitate to make it evident by wilting rapidly. So be sure to have this as your child’s daily chore. Additionally, these plants usually produce tiny baby spiders that you may harvest and use to start new plants.
