It is an accepted fact that plants are beautiful and beneficial roommates – home or office, we love green plants for the serenity that they bring to any space. On January 10, we celebrate Houseplant Appreciation Day – so here at City Line Florist, we thought we would talk a little bit about the science behind our love for the green plant.
While we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, plants do just the opposite. Having green plants in your home fills the room with more of the oxygen you need; and that’s not all they do for air quality. Green plants have been proven to actually detoxify the air, removing pollutants and toxins that result from common household items such as inks, paints and textiles. So breathe deep and enjoy the air – your green plant is hard at work.
Studies have shown that in hospital settings, patients who have green plants in their room enjoy numerous medical benefits. Blood pressure levels are lower, as are anxiety levels; while heart rates seem to normalize and less pain medication is requested. As a matter of fact, the numerous positive effects on patient health have shown that those with green plants in their room are generally released from care earlier than those without – so if you are visiting a loved one, make sure to bring a green potted plant!
Did you know that green plants bolster a sense of well being? People with green houseplants have longer attention spans and clearer focus, making a green plant a great gift for a colleague, or the college student in your life. With so many clear reasons to give a green plant, it is no wonder they have a day set aside to honor them.
A green plant represents a wealth of benefits fitting for anyone – and City Line Florist has a wide selection of green houseplants to choose from. Stop into our Trumbull flower shop or shop online, and give a gift that will be appreciated all year long!
