10 Shops Where You Can Buy Indoor Plants
Bring nature in!
(SPOT.ph) There’s a reason why so many people own indoor plants these days. Not only do they bring color and beauty to an area, but studies have proven that these decorative creations instantly improve a person’s physical and mental well-being—effectively purifying the air and reducing stress through their calming presence.
Anyone can get into this green investment for as low as P150 (like an air plant in upcycled wine cork). Some plants are so low-maintenance, you only need to water them once every two weeks and ignore them for the remainder of the time (but being so beautiful, who could resist staring at them?). Others don’t even need direct sunlight to thrive in the cooped-up space they inhabit.
Before purchasing a plant, remember to ask about its characteristics and needs, checking to see if it complements your area and your lifestyle. Don’t go for one that needs daily care if you’re the type who’s hardly home or easily forgets things. If you have pets or kids, check the type of plant you’re getting before bringing it home (some are harmful when ingested in large amounts). We help you get your indoor plant fix from these 10 cool options:
