Houseplants are in fashion once again and its easy to see why. They can brighten and add colour to virtually any space in the house and the physical and physiological health benefits are enormous. They have been shown to improve mood and reduce stress as well as reducing the levels of carbon dioxide and purifying the air.
Things to consider when choosing the right houseplant:
Amount of natural light. Light levels of different locations are very important, too much light and the leaves of some plants can get scorched and discolour not enough light and some plants will struggle to grow.
Temperature. Room temperature can vary season to season so its important to consider what plants will thrive in the colder environments.
Humidity. Bathrooms and kitchens will have a high humidity where as central heated rooms will have very dry air. Orchids prefer a higher humidity and will struggle in a very dry atmosphere.
