Low Maintenance, Low Investment Plants For You

Posted by Aashna Raja on

PLANTS AND HOME

A house with beautiful plants in each corner, a touch of nature in your most comfortable space. 

Doesn't that sound like a dream? 

Except, it's not, because in reality our love for plants is overpowered by the energy we require to tend for them. We could get around to showering our love once in a while, but it could be easily forgotten too, leading to shriveled up leaves & even worse - Dead plants!

Fortunately for those who don't get around to smiling with glee while watering their plants and speaking to them everyday… Nature has yet another gift for us! A wide variety of lovely, low maintenance indoor plants. 

Why these, you might ask? 

  1. Act as air purifiers - Absorbing all the chemicals and releasing good, fresh, natural air into the house, improving the quality of indoor air. So, you can breathe easy! 
  2. Low maintenance - As mentioned above, you don't need to feel guilty about forgetting about them once in a while! All of them require low light & minimal water! 
  3. Therapeutic - Plants have a natural way to make you feel calmer & more collected, therefore decreasing your stress levels! It releases good vibes and let’s go of all the bad. 
  4. Increases productivity – Known to decrease stress, just being around plants enables people to work with increased attention and gives their self-esteem a major boost.
  5. A sight for sore eyes - Adding small plants to any room & office, help in making the atmosphere lively and comfortable. 
  6. Inexpensive – A one-time cost, these plants cost anywhere between Rs.200-Rs.1000. But, with its low maintenance feature, you don’t need to worry about changing the soil or replanting them.
