A Heathy Plant for Heathy Humans Part 1

Early this week, I was browsing some articles when I come across a piece about house plants that also have health benefits that we might not know about. However, just now, when I was about to blog about it, I couldn’t find it. Nevertheless, I found a post by Lifeheck that talks about plants and flowers, which you can find at home that are healthy for humans in one way or another.

I remember hating this thing in primary because the school put Spider Plants in the walkway, and every time I passed there with my wheelchair, it scratched me. The leaves end tend to be pointy, so it’s best to keep them on a side or in a corner.

Benefits are:

  • You are removing formaldehyde from the air in your home. (I learnt today that formaldehyde is found anywhere from paper bags to panelling to synthetic fabrics.
  • Also, it detects carbon monoxide in the air.

Ideal for:

People won’t don’t own a green thumb.

 Better air quality in the room

Care Plan:

  1. Don’t put in direct sunlight.
  2. It needs to be watered every now and then.

Aloe Vera

Benefits are:

  • It helps with burns on the skin, like sunburns and soothes irritation.
  • It aids frostbite, psoriasis and cold sores.

Care Plan:

  1. They need to be deeply watered and their soil left to dry just slightly (about 1 to 2 inches deep) between watering.

Note: They do well in the sun; however, they can turn brown when given too much of it so, indirect sunlight is best.

I want to try and keep my post short and sweet, so I’m splitting it into 2 or 3 parts. Any thoughts on this post or any other, let me know in the comments.

  1. I have spider plants every where! I’m sure you’ve seen photos of them…I didn’t know they could remove formaldehyde. Guess I don’t have to worry about that 🙂
    I’ve had the worst luck with aloe, watering too much. I might try again soon
