For those who are living in the city, the houses and neighborhoods usually are isolated from the green scenery.
When you look out the window you can not see the hill, but you can see the neighbor near the block next to the shirt hanger. When you leave the house, the air is full of car smoke. Stress becomes.
That is why more and more people are buying ornamental trees to put in the house. Not a plastic tree ye, but a tree that really sucks in carbon dioxide and releases oxygen! Despite being called an ornamental plant, these trees are not just about making your home look beautiful. It can provide many benefits, including:
- Helps to reduce depression
- Helps air circulation in the house
- Helps memory and mental health
According to a study, indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air due to toxic substances that can be found in home cleaning products such as soap, pesticides, paints, perfume sprayers and so on.
Although signs of pollution at home are difficult to detect, they can be easily handled in fact. In addition to beautifying the house, green plants placed in various corners of the house can help to absorb harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide, xylene, benzene and other chemicals.
According to an experiment conducted by the American number one agency, NASA, found that fresh plants in the house can eliminate toxic air that can cause cancer. Through this research, scientists have also found that fresh plants are the most effective option for cleaning the air. And, the larger the leaf surface is the better as it can affect the fresher air rate.
So, if you want to start making your own “green apartment”, here we list the home decoration trees that you can buy. You do not need a yard or balcony for these trees. Enough to get enough sunlight and rinse with enough water.
1) Snake Plant
This is one of the easiest trees to take care of, the Snake Plant, or also known as Jin Tongue. This tree does not need a lot of light, so it is easy for you to put it in any niche. It can also hold without water for a long time, so make sure you do not over-flush.
Compared to most other plants that absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during the day, this tree does the same thing but at night. That is why there are people who put this tree in the bedroom.
2) Spider Plant
Another popular and easy-to-care tree is the Spider Plant. It is ideal for placing in cold to room temperature and prefers dry soil. This tree loves sunlight, so you can place it close to the window. Some even place the Spider Plant hanging.
Spider Plant gets its name because its leaves look like spider legs, so when it is long it may look a little fibrous. So make sure you cut and trim the leaf shoots once in a while.
3) Peace Lily
Peace Lily is one of the only trees on this list that has flowers, for those of you who want a little color in the house. Since this tree is small, you have many choices about where to place this tree, for example on a table or bookshelf.
Peace Lily can live in dim, so it is ideal even if your apartment does not get much light. This tree can also withstand low temperatures and dry areas.
4) Fiddle Leaf Fig
Fiddle Leaf Fig is the largest tree on this list, so make sure you have enough space to place this tree on the floor.
The leaves of the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree are large and dense, and the trunk of the tree itself can grow tall. So this tree is perfect for filling your home space to look ‘full’.
If you want to know when to flush, prick the soil in the pot with your fingers. If you feel the surface (within an inch) of the soil is dry, it is time to water it.
You can also wipe the leaves of this tree when there is a lot of dust so that it can absorb sunlight more efficiently, and look beautiful and tidy.
5) Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera or aloe vera has been popular for a long time, I want to go back to the MLM era which said that aloe vera leaves have many benefits!
Aloe vera gel is said to help the skin to heal, for example from the effects of burns. For ornamental plants, aloe vera is also a tree that is easy to care for. Make sure you place this tree close to the sun, and water it regularly.
Because it loves light and water, many place aloe vera trees in bathrooms and kitchens.
