Snake, My Green Friend at Home #MYFAVORITEHOUSEPLANT

Indoor plants bring much benefits to our home more than we ever know. With the biggest life plot twist we are facing because of the pandemic, surely most of us are finding comfort in different things. Thus obviously, many have resorted on adopting greens in their houses, aspiring to be a full pledged plant parents!

Who wouldn't, actually? I admit how even my own family have the done the same thing! In the Journal of Physiological Anthropology (2015), it has found out that interacting with indoor plants can can reduce both physiological and psychological stress. First of all, the color green is one of the relaxing color for the eyes. Second, growing a plant is undeniably satisfying because it gives us a sense of achievements as we nurture it. Plants are also like pets that even if they can't actually talk back or communicate with us, we can talk to them! Simply because they are still living organisms. There's also an odd saying from elders that if you talk with plants, they'll probably grow more healthy. Befriending a plant is actually not a weird thing!

Having plants in the home also vibrates an ambiance of productivity. Ofcourse, they're one of the best symbol of productivity. Aside from that, because they're part of the nature, they bring much relaxation and calmness that can reduce our anxieties.

Now if you'll ask me what is my favorite house plant as of the moment, there are a lot, but on the top sits an odd but awesome plant!

Its name would sound dangerous and scary, but in reality, it's literally harmless!

It doesn't hiss, but it was named as "snake plant" ( also known as Sansevieria trifasciata or Mother-In-Law's Tongue) . It is simply because its thin long leaves has a green and yellow pattern that closely resembles a snake skin. ( I just don't know from whoever's yard  my mother had stolen it. Kidding! She said she picked it up along the road while going home because it was abandoned with some other random plants.)

Anyway, what's amazing with this plant is they are top air purifier among indoor plants! They may sound poisonous but they are literally the exact opposite. These plant absorbs toxins and releases oxygen. The plant may releases moisture in the air and lessens airborne allergens. They can be a big help for people with allergies. Snake plants literally filters out chemicals on the air such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene. They produces more oxygen than any other plants and were actually not high maintenance. They prefer bright sunlight but they can also survive on low levels or a bit dim rooms. They can adapt to any environment and even survive droughts!

With their amazing pattern and overall appearance, they can be good home ornaments. Their sizes can fit to be displayed on top of shelves and desks!

However, even if they seem fun and easy to adopt, we must always keep in mind that we need to be responsible enough. In general rather, growing a plant is a serious responsibility even though it doesn't require you to be an expert. Atleast, be sure you have an accomodating location for them. Places where they can receive enough sunlight, like besides the window. You must also be disciplined to water them regularly and check on pests or insects that might ruin their leaves. As I've said, they are living creatures too and they deserve to be treated with enough tender love, and care. As a plant parent, they are our child to be nurtured of. To be with plants also means to be a mother and a friend in some way, so that they can grow lovingly within the boundaries of your home!

Hope this article inspired you to welcome a green friend in your home. Have a nice day! Staysafe and Godbless.
