Spring bulbs are popping up everywhere outside and I love seeing them! But I want to see them inside too, so I bought a few grape hyacinths at the flea market with the intent of planting them indoors for awhile. I’ve been picking up more plants lately for the house. Indoor plants help to purify and humidify the air. Plus studies show that plants can increase attentiveness by up to 70%. And so I did a little indoor gardening with grape hyacinths!
When I picked these up at the flea market 2 weeks ago, they were considerably smaller and hadn’t bloomed yet. I was waiting for flowers to appear before transplanting them into my white ironstone bowls, which I also got at the flea market but on a different day.
I’ll eventually transplant these to the outdoor garden.
When indoor gardening with plants to improve quality of life, you want 1 plant for every 129 square feet to reduce fatigue and stress. To purify the air, you want 15 to 18 plants for 1800 square feet (according to Bayer Advanced).
And then of course, there’s the mood enhancing benefit just from looking at their beauty!
What type of indoor plants do you decorate with?
