Indoor Houseplants That May Be Good for Your Health

Since the olden times, health for Indians has been about a holistic approach. The WHO (World Health Organization) defines health as complete physical, mental, and social well-being. In the frenzy of modern life, with the constant runups and rundowns, most of us have no time left to focus on our health. And, in the few hours we might get, there are other ‘more’  important things to do. Today, in this blog, let us talk about a few indoor plants for home that will fill your house with greenery and good health.


The Rubber Plant, also known as the ‘Ficus Elastica,’ is a gorgeous houseplant. It looks pretty, everyone talks about it, and it is very easy to care for. This plant’s best feature is its glossy dark-green leaves, and when a new leaf unfurls, you can see it emerging from a reddish hue. Apart from the ornamental houseplant benefits, these gentle beauties also help to make the air of your home cleaner by absorbing the harmful toxins released by the many items of utility that we use in our daily lives.


The Areca palms are tall, clumping palms rising from golden trunks. They spread their beautiful fronds—you can call them leaves—all over and grace our homes with their splendid tropical beauty. It is one of the best houseplants and the perfect one to have in your bedroom. The plant is highly efficient in filtering out toxins from an indoor environment and does so without a slight sigh. Areca palms are very easy to look after as well. Just place them where they receive sunshine for a few hours a day, preferably in the morning or the late evening sun, and your plant will thrive.


Chlorophytum Comosum, or the Spider plant, is an indoor gardener’s delight. The plant is known for its long, narrow, slender leaves that look like spider legs (chills!) or, more beautifully, like a waterfall cascading down in shades of green. This is an excellent houseplant known for its versatility. Whether you put it in a hanging planter or your work desk, the spider plants lend their charm everywhere. The spider plant has another advantage: if you have a little furry friend who decides to nip at the leaves, they will be safe, too. The spider plants are pet-friendly and perfect for a home with pets. The plants are excellent air purifiers as well.

Do you like cheese?

Well, who doesn’t? If you are also a fan of blocks of cheese, we plan to give you the same vibe and add beautiful green vibes to your home. The Swiss cheese plant or the Monstera Broken Heart plant is truly a gem, adorning living paces and providing many health benefits for your family. Not only does the plant look stunning in indoor gardens, it also becomes the talk of any gathering you host. The plant is a super air-purifying plant, absorbing harmful toxins in the air and releasing oxygen-rich, bettering the air quality. Ensure you keep this tropical plant in a place receiving diffused sunlight and water it deeply when the soil is dry. The Monstera Broken Heart is an ornamental plant that can also create focal points in your indoor gardens.


No indoor houseplant list is complete without mentioning the tough and hardy Snake plant. Also known as the Sansevieria trifasciata, the snake plant has tall green leaves shaped like a sword rising from the scabbard, graceful and elegant but not deadly (chuckles!). The snake plant is an indoor gardener’s pride as not only does it require minimum care, but it also has plenty of health benefits. It mainly purifies indoor air by absorbing harmful toxins such as formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene, making your living spaces beneficial for health.
