The aesthetic value and sheer beauty of tropical house plants are immediately evident. Lush, vibrant plants do wonders for your décor, mood, and even your health. Tropical plants provide a variety of health benefits including giving you cleaner air to breathe. By cleaning the air, they help you avoid “sick building disease,” which is a result of the common build-up that occurs from dust particles found in furniture and chemicals often found in common household cleaning supplies. These dust particles and chemicals often do not get filtered out due to a lack of proper air circulation indoors, making you feel tired, drowsy, and even experience itchy eyes and headaches.
Because tropical plants can absorb these harmful toxins from the air, studies have shown they are almost as effective, and definitely more natural and cost effective than air purifiers.
There are several benefits to planting tropical trees outdoors as well. Use tropical trees to not only increase the beauty of your landscaping, but also to improve the air quality, provide stormwater interception, reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide and conserve energy.
You can also easily have a tropical plant indoors and here are a few popular ones you could try:
- Rubber Tree
- Chinese Evergreen
- Peace Lily or Spathiphyllum
- Dieffenbachia or Dumb Cane
- Bird of paradise
