Arizona is known for its beautiful sunny weather and low humidity. Pool season is every season here in the valley. However, too much dry air can be damaging. Medical maladies such as uncomfortable noses, lack of disease prevention, and flaky skin may occur. Wooden furniture and wood in the structure of your home may also start to creak because dry air is pulling in moisture from wherever it can find it. To help improve the air quality inside your home without the large expense of heavy-duty humidifiers, here are some plants that will add moisture and beauty instead:
Aloe Vera is known for its healing properties – apply the gel of the leaves onto small burns, cuts, and cold sores. This plant is not only a regenerating first-aid kit, but also a charming addition to any home.
The beautiful and green Areca Palm can thrive in your home for up to 10 years. A large Areca Palm can transpire nearly one-quart of water in 24 hours. These plants thrive in bright, filtered light.
Bamboo plants are one of the easiest plants to take care of – you simply just make sure that there is at least an inch of water above the rocks. These plants can live in water so there is no need to worry about soil.
According to NASA research, this plant filters toxins such as formaldehyde and xylene. The Boston Fern is an easy household plant because it doesn’t require a green thumb – just some frequent watering.
Ficus trees are beautiful, tall, and full plants that are the perfect edition to any home. They are effective at purifying the air of formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. This low-maintenance, evergreen plant thrives in bright, indirect natural light.
Snake plants have long, thick, and appealing leaves that hold a lot of moisture. They are easy to take care of due to their tolerance for dry soil.
