Houseplants are great and have many health benefits to offer us but most of us don't have the “Green thumb” and prefer hassle-free care.

Although it may seem challenging to grow plants indoors, there are a lot of options to reap the benefits of having indoor plants in your home.

By choosing low maintenance plants, such as succulents and cacti, anyone can bring more green inside. Consider choosing succulents and cacti and learn all the health benefits indoor gardens offer.  

Benefit #1: They Help Us Breathe Better

Adding succulents and cacti to your home, help keep your fresh air and remove toxins from the environment. Plants absorb our respiratory waste (carbon dioxide), and they convert it into plant carbohydrates to build strong bodies that in turn create pure, clean, life-empowering oxygen for us to breathe. 

Benefit #2: They Increase Our Productivity 

Whether it’s the color and texture that calms the mind or the reminder of nature that makes us feel relaxed, Indoor plants are known to improve our mood and concentration. Having succulents and cacti in your home or office will also make your day productive, peaceful and rewarding.

Benefit #3: They Have Healing Powers

Cacti are great plants to have around for calmness, relaxation and intensive healing issues. Some varieties, like Agave and aloe vera, also contain healing properties long used for remedying many ailments. Agave is known as a natural antiseptic used to treat cuts and burns and aloe vera plants' gel alleviates sunburns, cuts, and bruises.

Benefit #4: They Can Live Anywhere

Succulents and cacti are your best bet for adding a bit of greenery and visual interest to your space. With their low-maintenance personality and shallow root system, these beauties are the perfect plants to use when creating a unique garden—getting art and nature in one space!
