A plant lady's comprehensive list of air cleansing greenery

Okay let's just jump straight into this; plants are great and are the superior flora over cut flowers. A bunch of stunning chrysanthemums are pretty and great for about a week. Treat a plant right and it will be your lifelong companion. Plants are much more sustainable than buying cut flowers. The floral industry causes a lot of damage to the environment, especially around 'floral peak' holidays such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. Plants can also improve your general wellness by reducing stress and anxiety; plant care = self care! But my absolute favourite thing about plants... they can help cleanse the air in your living space. Keep reading to discover what types of plants have the best air-purifying qualities to improve your living space.

Quite often, the language of plant care suggests a simplistic symptom/remedy style of care - if yellowed leaves, then overwatering; if browned tips, raise the humidity or let your water sit for 24 hours to let the chlorine dissipate. This not only causes panic and promotes a poor mental model of how plants work, it doesn't leave room for natural processes like leaf turnover and blemishes from hard work - older leaves WILL yellow and die as new ones grow; tips WILL eventually become brown. You are a plant parent! You're not baking a cake or maintaining a piece of furniture. - 1️⃣ This is my peace lily, which is coming up to 5 years living with me. It started in a 6" pot and moved up to 8" and now, a 12" pot. It looks pretty much "perfect" but just a few minutes ago... 2️⃣ 3️⃣ The plant had several yellowed leaves. Conventional wisdom would say this is a sign of "overwatering" but clearly, the plant would not be alive for 5 years if I consistently watered when the soil was already moist. 4️⃣ And a closer look will show that pretty much ALL the older leaves have browned tips (left to right - oldest to newest). Since I know my plant is growing well, I know that leaf turnover and older leaves browing at the tips are just realities of peace lily ownership. - The most satisfied plant parents are those who appreciate how plants grow as opposed to just how they look now. ~ ~ #peacelily #spathiphyllum #houseplantclub #houseplants #wisdom #plants #plantas #plantgoals #iloveplants #gardening #botanical #greenthumb #plantlife #chasinglight #plantlove #plantlover #horticulture #houseplantjournal #urbanjunglebloggers #plantstyling #indoorplants
