Best Bedroom Plants – Artificial and Real Plants

Best Bedroom Plants

Having plants in the bedroom can help to create a calming and relaxing environment. Important if you find it hard to unwind and get a good night’s sleep. Choosing the best bedroom plants is important to create the right environment.

You don’t need live plants however if you have allergies or don’t want to have the upkeep responsibility. There are pros and cons to choosing between live and artificial plants, and it’s down to your own preference.

Live plants help to freshen the air in your room. They produce oxygen and can increase humidity a little by releasing water vapor. It can be therapeutic attending to plants and seeing them flourish, personally, I really enjoy it.

If you want artificial plants however, you can get plants that look realistic and most people will never know the difference. They still promote a more relaxing environment and bring something special to the decor of your room.

Below are three live plants and two artificial plants to purchase for your bedroom.

Areca Palm Tree. Butterfly Palm. Dypsis Lutescens 55-65cm Tall

Areca Palm Tree. Butterfly Palm. Dypsis Lutescens 55-65cm tallAs far as bedroom plants go the Areca Palm Tree is a beautiful looking plant. It’s also called the Chrysalidocarpus Lutescens or Dypsis Lutescens, Yellow Butterfly Palm, Bamboo Palm, and the Golden Cane Palm if you know it by any of these names.

It’s one of the easiest indoor plants to grow. A lot of people have them in their kitchens or dining rooms, but they are just as home in the bedroom. They rarely get diseases and are great for beginners.

The Areca Palm was one of the plants listed in a NASA study of the best air purifying plants. Meaning this plant is producing fresh oxygen into your room and keeping it as fresh as a plant can.

They like indirect sunlight, you need to keep the soil moist, and they grow around 30cm each year. There will come a time when you need to trim it down or move it, but that’s your decision when it comes to it.

Large Pink Phalaenopsis Flowering Orchid

Twin Stemmed Pink Orchid Bedroom Plant

Orchids are considered to be some of the most stunning looking plants and if you look at this bright pink example I think you’ll agree.

They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so if this one isn’t to your taste take a browse at some other looks.

They are really easy to grow in the home. It’s over watering and too much love that causes orchids to suffer in most instances.

Just follow the guidelines, they don’t take up too much time. They are definitely ornamenting flowers and look great in any room.
