Indoor Plants are the best way to create attractive and peaceful settings while enhancing our sense of well-being. Moreover, indoor plants also known as houseplants help purify the air in our homes. These plants not only convert carbon dioxide into oxygen but also grasp and absorb many harmful pollutants in the air.

So we all must have at least 2-3 indoor plants at our homes that will keep us healthy and fit.

Check out four indoor plants for your home;

Peace Lily:

We all want to live a life filled with peace and contentment. Isn’t It? Hence Peace Lilly is a houseplant that generally fulfills these wishes. Go and buy it today and let the elegant dark green leaves soothe your soul, and let the huge fragrant flowers soothe you at the end of another stressful day! Also, allow plants to help you overcome these allergies while purifying pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde in the air at your home. 

Different Varieties- Jetty Peace Lily, Patricia Peace Lily, Piccolino Peace Lily, Domino Peace Lily. 

It lives best in shade and does not require much sunlight. It thrives best in moist soil and needs watering if the soil goes dry.  Only once a week it needs to be watered. 

Snake Plant:

Snake plant is an ideal home plant for a number of reasons. Its decorative value adds beauty to your home. The snake plant requires minimal care and, on top of that, it has outstanding air filtration qualities. It is one of the few plants that remove four of the five toxins and also removes carbon dioxide at night. In other words, it keeps the air in your home clean, even if you catch up on the beautiful sleep of the night! 

Different Varieties- Black gold, Extreme Black coral, Seafoam, Silver queen 

It flourishes in both low sunlight and under bright. It can survive in poor and dry soil conditions. 

Be careful not to over-water them as their roots tend to rot. In winter, watering should be done only once a month. 

Aloe Vera:

It is also known as a” Miracle Plant” and is famous for its medicinal properties to rejuvenate, calm and heal the human body. Aloe vera is a stemless succulent plant with thick, fleshy leaves and serrated edges. Although it grows wild in various tropical climates, it has also been successfully grown indoors as a potted plant. It is resistant to most pests. That again means you don't have to spend time removing these pests from leaves, and there's a treatment available for those cuts, bruises, and skin conditions! 

The plant needs bright and sunny conditions to grow well. It is best placed under windows facing south or west. Aloe vera needs well-drained sandy potting soil to grow well. Experts recommend using commercially available "cactus and succulent mix" containers to ensure excess water drains away easily. To aid in this process, it is best to use clay pots to grow aloe vera because they are porous. 

You must remember that aloe vera is a succulent plant like cactus, it grows best in dry conditions. Aloe vera does not tolerate standing water. Make sure the pot is completely dry before watering again. 

Lucky Bamboo Plant:

The tree whose name starts with "Lucky" is a deadly gift in itself! 

You can find it all over India; both at home and in the place of business, as it is believed to bring happiness and prosperity there. The positive effect of lucky bamboo depends on the number of trunks connected to each stem, which shows other levels of prosperity and profit. 

Different Varieties- ribbon dracaena, lucky bamboo, Chinese water bamboo, Sander’s dracaena, and friendship bamboo. 

Lucky Bamboo requires an appropriate level of management. One of the important things to keep in mind is that lucky bamboo plants should always be kept in clean water. Plants are susceptible to chemicals; traces of chlorine and fluorine in the water eventually affect the leaves and turn yellow or brown. 

Since it cannot grow in direct sunlight, place it near a window so that it receives indirect sunlight. Use rich plotting and well-drained soil.  

Change the water every 2 weeks. Also, remember that plants should be kept moist but not soaked all the time.
