How do indoor plants enhance your wellbeing?

“I mean visually they look amazing. I think a minimal amount of objects in a space and then combined with a few key
plants is all you need. Keeping a minimal, simple and green visual landscape enhances wellness, however the benefit I
find in a deeper sense is the daily contact of caring for and looking at a plant in detail.”

Has taking care of plants taught you anything insightful?

“When you water a plant, and care for it, you tend to really become appreciative of it when it grows. You notice things
in detail, like when a new shoot flourishes or when it flowers, and this makes you happy. I believe that just the daily
act of seeing this gives a broader appreciation for nature and the world we live in.”

What’s your favourite plant?

“My favourite plant at the moment is the Umbrella Tree (Schefflera actinophylla). They’re native to Australia and
fairly common outside. I don’t love them that much outside, however when inside and placed in a well lit place with a
high light for them to climb towards, they are super cool.”
