THE 5 PLANTS TO PUT IN YOUR BEDROOM
If you want to spruce up your bedroom and accompany your organic cotton bedding by adding a touch of greenery, there are some things you should know when choosing your future plants.
Highly breathable, aloe vera will brighten up your bedroom—place near a window or at the end of a table to create a lush tropical feel. The gel contained in the leaves can also have moisturizing properties. Aloe Vera releases oxygen at night, making it perfect for your sleep environment. It is also one of the easiest plants to care for because you can go 2-3 weeks without watering, and it will be A-ok.
English Ivy is one of the best houseplants to filter a wide range of toxins from the air effectively. It’s known to absorb formaldehyde, benzene, xylene, and toluene. Not only does English Ivy help rid our air of toxins, but research shows that it may be able to clear air of mold and animal feces as well as improve allergy symptoms. This plant works well in a bedroom because it is easy to grow and is very low-maintenance, making it ideal for amateur plant growers or anyone too busy to be caring for plants.
Named after a particular eight-legged creature, but not to worry, this plant won’t bug you, unlike the insect. Style on the high shelves or in a hanging basket for a boho feel in your space. Keep these plants in bright to moderate indirect sunlight and water occasionally during initial growth. Once you’ve had the plant for about a year, water moderately.
Simple & practical, the cactus embellishes any sleep space. These prickly beauties are resistant and require little maintenance, ideal for a bedroom plant. Cacti absorb carbon dioxide when we sleep and release oxygen to contribute to the quality of our sleep. What more could you ask for? They represent the best way to introduce plants into your bedroom based on maintenance.
This one is a no-brainer, right? Virtually all sleep-related products, from pillow sprays, lotions, and mattress toppers, contain this sweet scent. It is, therefore, naturally the perfect addition to any bedroom. When deciding the location, locate a spot with plenty of light near a window that can occasionally open to fresh air. Once in bloom, enjoy the fresh scent before bed or when you're feeling stressed – studies have shown that lavender can lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
