Why men need plants in their homes to

A lot of men overlook a nice plant due to the silly idea that they're more of a women's thing. Nonsense, a plan makes your home more lively and provides a more interesting look with a pop of colour on a table or in a corner. A plant also show that you're clearly up for looking after something that needs a lot of attention. Here's some other, more surprising reasons why you should totally get some plants.

1. Plants can help fight colds

2. Indoor plants can help remove airborne contaminants

3. Plants can make you feel happier and calmer according to studies

4. Some indoor plants, like aloe, can be applied to skin and offer pain relief.

5. Plants can prevent allergies. Exposing children to allergens such as plants early in life can help them build a tolerance and immunity to the allergen.

6. Plants are natural humidifiers. They really do soften the air.

7. Gerbera daises give off oxygen at night so they can help you sleep better.
