If you are looking for a new addiction, one that is actually good for your health, it’s time to get in on the houseplant movement.

It’s apartment-dwelling and renting millennials who are driving the great houseplant boom. Who doesn’t love the greenery that a living (or fake) plant can bring to a space?

While most landlords have a no pets rule, nobody can object to a potted plant. Big or small, pokey or lush, they have the power to transform not only you, but your room too.

Still not convinced? Here is 3 reasons why bringing the outside in will help you create a better quality of life.

HOUSEPLANTS LOOK GOOD – Plants are an easy and gorgeous way to style up your living space. Adding greenery and plants is a great way to add life and energy to your home.

THEY MAKE US HAPPIER – Studies have shown that indoor plants make us less stressed and enhance feelings of self-esteem and general well being. Seeing greenery and nature help us feel more relaxed and calm, which in turn benefits our everyday mood.

THEY MAKE YOUR HOUSE A HOME – Consider houseplants as an important part of your interior decoration, transforming your home into a green oasis. Houseplants make living spaces — whatever the size — more comfortable, breathable and luxurious. You’ll be happier, less stressed and have more energy.
