For most of us, at least one-third of our life is spent in the bedroom.
Even if you can’t do luxury, at least, should you make it gentle and comfortable?
Therefore, when choosing plants for the bedroom, one should be careful.
How to choose bedroom plants?
1. Not too big, not too much
Middle school biology textbooks have already taught us that the living habits of green plants are [breathing (absorbing oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide) day and night, while photosynthesis can only release oxygen under light conditions].
At night, when we turn off the lights and fall asleep, oxygen becomes a resource that we compete with plants.
Especially in the bedroom with closed environment and narrow space, the oxygen consumption of broad-leaved plants with large leaf area cannot be underestimated, which may affect the sleep quality.
Therefore, if your bedroom area is not too large and you do not have the habit of sleeping with doors and windows open for a long time, you may have to give up those popular green plants with tall plants and wide leaves. If you can still keep good ventilation during sleep and have sufficient light in the room during the day, it is very suitable to invite them into your residence.
STEP 2 Avoid scent-irritating plants
It should be a very pleasant thing to sleep with the fragrance of flowers. But not all [flowers] are suitable for bringing you a deep and sweet dream.
Most of the aroma of plants comes from volatile aromatic substances in their bodies, and many of these complex aromatic substances are emotional stimulants.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus), which is usually used in floral art and small potted plants, although there are many kinds, it generally contains eucalyptus oil with certain irritation. It tastes a bit like cooling oil and essential balm-you can certainly understand why it is not suitable for bedrooms.
Similarly, there are cloves, gardenia, rosemary, perfume lily, etc. Their smell is thick and rich or irritating, especially in limited space, high flower fragrance concentration is more likely to cause vertigo and discomfort, so even if you like it very much, it is recommended that you [try it a little].
3. Do you want to reject [carcinogenic plants]?
In recent years, we have often seen some news that [carcinogenic/toxic plants] hurt people. It seems that it is not suitable to live in harmony with human beings, but this is not the case.
Compared with plants that have been emitting rich aroma day and night, their harm is actually very limited.
Most [carcinogenic/toxic plants] come into contact with at home, such as daffodils, tiger prickly plum, poinsettia, leaf-changing wood, dripping Guanyin (taro), etc., and their harmful components generally come from the juice in the body. However, as long as it is not broken and broken at will and has a large-scale [intimate contact] with the juice, there will be no actual harm to the human body in what.
4. Full consideration of all family members
For example, the [carcinogenic/toxic plants] mentioned above should be carefully considered by families with pets and children to avoid harm caused by accidental ingestion.
Similarly, the smell of pollen and some plants may also lead to allergy. If there are relatives and friends with sensitive constitution in the home, it is better to consult and understand before purchasing.
In addition, prickly plants such as rose, tiger prickly plum and cactus should also consider whether they are placed safely. After all, no one would like to grope for an alarm clock in the dark or go to the bathroom at night, but be stabbed with one hand and one foot:)
Which plants are worth buying?
All right! After understanding the above principles, let’s see which plants are worth recommending.
1. Imperceptible School: Simple and Fresh Green Plants with Viewing Leaves
Representative: Green dill; Chlorophytum comosum; Ferns
The most [broad spectrum] application should be this type of plant friends.
Most of the common small home green plants on the market can meet the following conditions:
- They are easy to feed; They rarely see special dust or smell; Their plant types are petite and do not take up too much space (or oxygen resources); Their leaves are fine and green, making it easy to relax when looking at them.
In recent years, many home green plants have also developed hydroponic varieties, i.e. Replacing soil matrix with [water + nutrient solution] to make it cleaner and sanitary.
2. Dexterity and Practicality: Silent Vanilla Plants
Representative: Basil; Mint; Sage
Like small home green plants, vanilla plants are petite, steadfast, green and lovely practical.
However, they still have some [special smell], and when you need them, you may use a wisp of their fragrance to adjust your mood.
Although the smell of some herbs (such as mint) may bring such feelings as [refreshing] [inspiring], fortunately they are not publicized, and as long as they are not planted on a large scale or deliberately sniffed, they will not have a substantial impact on your what.
Moreover, herbs are generally easy to survive and grow rapidly. Not only do they look promising, but they can occasionally be picked for kitchen cooking, killing two birds with one stone. Why not?)
3. Sweet Dreamers: Flowers and Plants with Gentle Aroma
Representative: Rose/Rose; Lavender; Chamomile
If you want to add some different romantic colors to your dreams, flowers and fruits with gentle fragrance may be a good choice.
For example, Chamomile, which plays an important role in medicine and aromatherapy, has been proved to have certain effects on relieving tension and resisting allergy with fresh aroma similar to apples.
Lavender, commonly used by Westerners, has a similar effect. As a refreshing, relaxing and sleeping aid formula, lavender extract has been widely used in various washing and protecting products and ingredients. Although lavender extract has been widely used in aromatherapy and is considered by some studies as one of the reliable soothing ingredients, However, some people have doubts about its real efficacy, believing that it is only that Westerners often come into contact with this smell from an early age, which will produce a hint of security.
Nowadays, lavender-scented products are also gradually popular in China. You can try the relevant scented tea or sachets to judge whether you are suitable. The same is true for chamomile and others.
In addition, the common roses on the market (actually one kind of Chinese rose), although some varieties have strong aroma, if properly controlled, can also be helpful to your dream.
The aromatic ether substances contained in it have always been considered to be an important role in relieving emotions and regulating hormones, and even remind men of [young beautiful girls who are in love]; The petal outline stacked one on top of another will also give people a romantic, relaxed and lingering look and feel hint, with a certain [enjoyment] meaning.
If this kind of fragrant flowers feel uncomfortable after being kept in the room for a long time, it is good to remove them in time.
4. Meng Chong Pi: All kinds of fleshy
If you like a soft, cute and loving bedroom, so much meat may hit it off with you.
Compared with ordinary leaf-watching and flower-watching plants, they have a more stable and toy-like appearance and look very [healing]; The demand for light, temperature and water is also relatively stable.
Moreover, the bedroom is generally relatively high in temperature, which is one of the most suitable small environments for meat in the home space.
However, remember to give them enough light to avoid excessive growth caused by long-term darkness-that is, continuous elongation [neck] to grow very high-that is not lovely.
