Feel Close To Nature With These 3 Indoor Plants

Living good shouldn’t only be qualified by what goes into your mouth, what car you drive or how many zeroes are in your bank account.

While good health is important during our daily quest for survival, for Nigerians it’s more a diet of inshallah and by His grace while working 24/7. It’s ok to take your foot off the pedal sometimes. Go out with the family, travel or a cheaper alternative- buy some plants!

I’m sure telling you to just buy plants sounds cryptic but don’t worry I’ll explain. As humans, we interact and are closely associated with other forms of life in nature. This biophilic design can be seen in restaurants and homes across different parts of Nigeria.

I’ve taken the liberty to look for 3 plants to support your first steps as a plant owner and boost your health, productivity and psychological well-being.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera

This shouldn’t appear as a surprise. It’s not news that this succulent plant is very distinctive looking with stemless, fleshy leaves. That and its miracle gel are what made it so famous but little do people know that the exterior is just as useful as its by-product as it creates extra oxygen at night. The Aloe Vera plant does not require constant attention, sunlight and watering, unlike some other plants.

lucky bamboe

Lucky Bamboo

This has to be one of my favourite plants. From the first day we locked eyes, I was in love. They are swirly and fun, adding character to a space or room.

These plants have personality and don’t play in the dirt but instead they love to relax in a vase with little water. No sunlight? No problem! These plants can grow in places with little or no light and if you think that’s not enough, the Lucky Bamboo is said to bring good fortune to a household.

mother-in-law's tongue

The Mother-in-law’s Tongue

Devil’s tongue, Mother-in-law’s Tongue or Snake plant, whichever you choose to call it is completely up to you.This is most likely the lowest maintenance plant on this list. You are probably going to need to do more dusting than watering for this plant.

So if you are looking to buy your first plant this should be your immediate choice. It’s also the best plant in air purification and in Lagos, a little fresh air wouldn’t hurt.
