Turning Over a New Leaf in 2019

We love house plants in Nest Manila! House plants give a room a stylish but natural flair. And they are one of the easiest and most accessible ways to refresh and update your home for the New Year

If you’re considering getting some house plants to spruce up your home, here are some more encouragement to get you to literally go green in 2019:

1. House plants are beyond decorative

Your home is supposed to be a refuge from all the stress that life throws our way. House plants helps you to slow down and relax — even without you knowing it. Go ahead and take deep breaths because they clean the air from indoor pollutants too! Plants like Philonderons purify the air and removes formaldehyde, one of the most common volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that come from furniture, cleaning supplies, and even dry-cleaned clothes! There are many other plants you can check out that purify the air such as Sanseviera Mikado, Spider Plant, Boston Plant, Pothos, and English Ivy.

2. There’s a plant for every room of your house

 Every room in the house has its own particular purpose, you can match the plant according to the room, how much it is used, and how much light it gets. There are plants for various type of sun exposure, whether it be bright, direct light; bright, indirect light; medium, indirect light; and low, indirect light.

For your living room and dining room, opt for statement plants. These are likely the two biggest rooms in your house, after all, and the ones that get the most guests, so plants with some “oomph” would be perfect. Bamboo Palms are gorgeous, tall, and they thrive in low, indirect light. They are easy to care for and take zero skills to grow. They also have the added bonus of purifying the air from toxins, something that you, your family, and guests would appreciate. Mix it up with the Monstera Deliciosa (Swiss Cheese plant), with its big glossy leaves if you want different plants in each room.

Lend some extra flair to your bathroom with small plants that thrive in a tropical environment. Bathrooms are often warm, humid, and have low lighting, just the kind of environment plants like ferns, air plants, and Philonderons would be happy to live in.

Yes, you can put decorative plants in the kitchen too, but it’s also the perfect space to have your potted herbs on display and within easy reach when you need some to sprinkle on your dishes. Plantui 6 plant garden is a nearly fool-proof way to grow herbs and veggies on your kitchen counter without soil (so no worries of getting dirt on your food). You can plant basil, thyme, even arugula and other leafy vegetables in it.

House plants in your bedroom makes it an even more peaceful sanctuary that you need any time of the day. Choose the more structured plants such as the Snake Plant that not only purifies the air from toxins, they won’t clutter your room with leaves too. For the kids room, choose hardy succulents (not spiky cacti!) in cute flower pots or even mugs. It’s never too early to teach the kids to take care of plants!

3. House plants can say something about your style

While plants look great on their own, go ahead and add your personal style to them. Decorate around them. Choose statement baskets to dress up the planters to lend a pop of tropical in your home. Have fun planting cacti and succulents in a terrarium for a centerpiece on your dining table.
