1. Jasmine Plant.
Jasmine makes for a wonderful accent plant because of its beauty and attractiveness, but it’s more than a cute smile to have on your nightstand. The smell of jasmine actually improves your sleep quality and boosts your risk of waking up with a better mood and less anxiety, according to a German study.
2. Golden Pothos.
The Golden Pothos is another fantastic air purifier and earns Jesse Waldman of Pistils Nursery an approval stamp because it is so easy to take care of. “There’s not too much light needed, and it’s also beautiful,” he says. “It cascades happily as a hanging plant or you can train it to bend and move up a trellis or moss pole.”
3. Parlor Palm.
This plant is very ideal for the bedroom as it likes indirect light and can grow better when moisture is high. The parlor palm does a fabulous job at leveling out moisture control which is a must when it comes to adding more health into your bedroom.
So if you keep your bedroom hot in the winters, then this plant is for and will thrive. Keep the soil moist but never soggy and muddy. Enable the soil to get barely dry, then water it carefully.
4. Rubber Plant.
Though rubber plants (Ficus robusta) are grown as simple houseplants, studies carried out by NASA show that they also boost the quality of indoor air. Their big leaves can absorb and break down airborne chemicals, making them almost harmless.
This plant adds a strong vertical interest to any room with its big, glossy leaves and its pleasant, muscly form. It likes to grow with moderate to mild and steady humidity which makes it perfect for the bedroom atmosphere. If you feel the need to prune, wear gardening gloves so you can keep your sticky sap off your fingers.
5. Areca Palm.
The highest air purification plant in NASA’s report is the Areca palm tree. The Areca, regarded as MetaEfficient’s most effective air humidifier, is designed to retain moisture from home or bedrooms during the dry season and constantly eliminate chemical pollutants from the air.
The leaves of this magnificent palm are between 6 and 7 feet long, so be sure to give it plenty of room. In the spring and summer, it also needs bright indoor light and regular light moisture (but don’t let it get soggy!).
6. Fiddle Leaf.
The fiddle leaf fig (Ficus lyrata) is one of the trendiest plants in the world, as it is widely used in home magazines and Instagram. They are among the finest indoor cleaning plants – and the larger they grow, the better they are.
Its wide leaves are its emphasis, so the right lighting is important in order to keep your plant lush in your bedroom setting.
See if the plants you already have helped make your home more comfortable and healthy. If not, try some of these bedroom’s best plants that’ll surely help you enjoy some healthy and relaxing shut-eye.
