Live plants have been proven to improve your mood, reduce stress levels, and help you sleep better. Plants also help humidify the air, which works to moisturize your nose and throat from drying out.
And, most importantly, plants add a touch of romance to any space.
Of course, the amount of light a bedroom receives varies, so your choice of plants will vary a little, But, you should look for varieties and species that can tolerate dryness because you may not always remember to water them in a room you only use at night.Low-light options
Some beautiful plants for low-light bedrooms include snake plant, ZZ plant, philodendron and pothos. All four of them thrive on neglect and have interesting growth habits and foliage that look great in any setting.
Great choices for brighter bedrooms include Chinese evergreen, spider plant, lucky bamboo, orchid, anthurium, dracaena, hoya, and schefflera. All of these beauties will add a spot of romantic color to a dresser or bedside table.
And finally, those plants that work well for sunny bedrooms include: succulents, sago palm, ponytail palm, croton, yucca cane, and aloe vera. These hardy plants can all handle direct sun and an occasional missed watering.
Of course, if you have the space, it’s a smart idea to include more than one plant per bedroom. Small clusters of plants can have a big impact on your physical and mental well being. Plus, they will help transform your space into a comfy Eden where you can escape to after a hard day.
