Urban Jungles bring many benefits besides the sheer beauty of the decor plants add to our homes. Plant care and self-care go hand in hand. Houseplants provide many positives to our daily lives in various, scientifically proven, ways. These benefits include air quality improvements, as plants bring in more oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, increasing humidity (even the Mid-Atlantic sometimes needs a little extra moisture in the air), assist in regulating air temperatures, and even boosting your immune system. There are even job benefits: productivity tends to improve as plants are present and sick leave has been found to be reduced up to 60%!

Putting plants in your house is not only beautiful looking but it can be fun too! More and more people are getting incredibly creative with how they decorate their plants. You no longer have to have your plant just sitting in that little orange pot holder standing out in the center of your room. Instead, make a statement with your urban jungles! What most don’t realize is that you can hang your plants like a macrame, have a kokedama ball as a table centerpiece, or create a terrarium for your shelves.
No matter what your stlye is, go on youtube or type into google how to make a macrame for my plants, and there are so many options for everyone to chose and become a professional gardener. Below is an example of how to make a Terrarium.
The best plants for a terrarium: Moon valley, Starfish plant, Neve plant, and Assorted cacti
Happy Planting Everyone!
