Heather's Helpful Hint

Houseplants Equal A Healthy Home
October 18, 2012

The temperatures are dropping and the days are shorter so we spend more and more time indoors. It is a great time to discover both the beauty and functionality of houseplants.

Energy efficient houses and office buildings save dollars, but studies show that indoor air pollution is a growing environmental hazard. One of the best ways of combating this problem is adding houseplants to your indoor decor.

Houseplants reduce pollutants, particularly nitrogen and formaldehyde. A single spider plant enclosed in a chamber filled with formaldehyde removed 85% of the pollutant in just one day. NASA used this plant on the space shuttle to absorb formaldehyde.

As few as fifteen well placed houseplants can significantly reduce pollutants in the average home all the while adding the beauty and interest of nature indoors. Some very easy to grow plants are here at Waterloo Gardens for your choosing and our greenhouse experts will help you select the right plants for different locations in your home.

It is the perfect time to accessorize your indoor spaces with beneficial and beautiful houseplants!
