Must-Have Summer Indoor Plants

Image

If you’re looking to add some beauty with function to your home, behold the houseplant.

The best part about indoor plants is, not only do they add liveliness to your home, but they also purify the air you breathe. As soon as you’re ready, incorporate these plants into your home’s décor.

Aloe plant

It’s no secret the feeling you get when walking through a garden- it's nothing short of peaceful and relaxing, so why not add that same feeling to the inside of your home?

The gel of the aloe plant serves multiple functions: curing sunburns, reducing wrinkles, and cleaning cuts. Most houseplants will clean the quality of air, but this aloe plant comes with a detection device. When too many harsh chemicals are in your home’s air you will notice brown spots all over the leaves.

Succulents and cacti

These vacation-proof plants can go weeks without nurture.  This means you can pack your bags and head off knowing you won’t come home to a house full of dead plants.

The best part about succulents and cacti are their modern and trendy qualities. Their small size makes them the perfect plant to hang from the ceiling or leave on a window sill.

Snake plant

Don’t be discouraged by the name, this tall leafy plant is perfect for those with brown thumbs. Also known as mother-in-law’s tongue or the ribbon plant, this is a succulent with thick, waxy leaves.

Its favorite home is potbound and actually, thrives on being ignored. Too much water or sunlight will make it frown. Place it in a vibrant or neutral pot and leave it be.

Bamboo plant

These attractive guys add peace as soon as they are planted. They look perfect- if kept small- on a desk or end table.

But be careful because these suckers can grow very tall and thick. If you have a larger pot and love for trees they can dress up any corner while removing benzene and trichloroethylene from your home's air.

Philodendrons

Chances are, you’ve seen these heart shaped plants decorated in someone’s home before. Not only are they easy to care for but they grow decorative vines.

When properly cared for, they can grow for years with moderate water and some sunlight, no wonder they are so popular!

When it comes to home improvement there are so many things you can do that will increase the longevity of your home and happiness. Not every project has to be expensive or time-consuming, you just have to find the right ones. If you ever need help or more ideas and advice, give White Aluminum a call!
