Having plants in the home has always been an interior design recommendation. However, there’s been quite an explosion of people choosing to become ‘plant parents,’ a trend which can partly be attributed to the Millennial generation’s fascination with plants. Perhaps you’ve decided to try out gardening as a new hobby, or maybe you’re already a plant parent that’s looking to add to their indoor plant collection — whatever your current plant parent status — have a look at these really trendy plants that can bring new-found energy into your home:
1. Aloe vera
Aloe vera is a plant with healing properties and many people grow it in their homes because of this. You’ve probably seen many beauty products that contain aloe vera, which is a testament to how beneficial this plant actually is. Having this plant in your home will come in handy for those irritating spots on your face, burns, and the promotion of oral and digestive health, and many more. You definitely won’t have to run to the pharmacy as much!
An added benefit of having aloe vera in your home is that this plant purifies the air by removing toxins like benzene and formaldehyde.
Also, aloe vera just looks aesthetically pleasing to have in your home.
Like aloe vera, ferns are also great for clearing the air of any toxins. They’re also commonly used as a food source in many countries as they contain vitamins A, and C, as well as potassium, phosphorous, and calcium.
Ferns also bring great energy into a space and are a great plant to decorate your home with.
