As any grower knows, bringing the beauty of outdoor gardening inside is a challenging pursuit. Fresh cut flowers bring a home to life; unfortunately they simply don't stay fresh and aromatic long enough. Houseplants are the key to naturally decorating your home and benefiting from everything plants have to offer.
We all know that plants absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. In fact, in manned space operations, NASA studies confirmed that common houseplants improve indoor air quality by purifying the air. Even more, research has shown that houseplants can remove up to 87% of indoor air pollutants and toxins that cause allergic reactions, sickness and fatigue.
Of course, nature's indoor benefits extend beyond physical health. Just ask any interior decorator. When adding vibrant color and room awe-inspiring accents to any room, man-made décor is no match for the power of plants. The right plant creates a unique focal point. Colors, textures, aromas, shapes, sizes - there is no better way to capture your individual senses of style. And with countless varieties - from tropical to dessert to flowering plants - every indoor space can have its own signature.
Caring for houseplants is simple. All it takes is a little specific information and some basic gardening skills. First, make sure to read about your chosen plants - sun and shade tips, watering amounts, indoor temperature. Most plants come with easy-to-follow tips to ensure healthy growth. And, most important, remember that a plant is a living thing. It's needs feeding on a regular basis. With Miracle-Gro® Plant Food Spikes, you can provide continuous feeding, simply.
