Benefits For The Indoor Grower

  • Look and feel: The obvious benefit of having plants indoors is how much it adds a great look and feel to a home. Some can be a focal point to visitors, especially if its a large palm type.
  • Air quality: A major benefit is how much a house plant can improve air quality. Some improve the quality more than others and a study was produced by NASA to discover plants that remove pollutants.
  • Your well being: This is not an obvious one. Taking care of anything living, such as people or animals provides that person with a sense of spiritual and emotional well being and, I believe this applies to plants.
  • Medicinal, health and beauty: Plants and herbs are available that are grown indoors that have medicinal properties for health purposes, such as the Aloe Vera.
