Indoor plants


Strictly speaking, there's no such thing as an "indoor plant". All plants naturally grow outdoors, but aren't necessarily suited to the climates we live in. So we bring them indoors where it's warmer and refer to them as "house plants".

The plants we bring into our homes often originate in warm, shady climates such as rainforests. Rainforest plants are used to being sheltered from direct sunlight by the taller forest trees, which is why they cope with the limited sunlight they receive indoors.

Indoor plants bring many benefits. In addition to their obvious aesthetic appeal they have a subliminally calming influence. Plants also generate oxygen, providing better air quality that improves many aspects of our lives.
