Westbury, United States - April 19, 2021 /PressCable/ —
Hicks Nurseries offers customers the ability to bring the beauty of nature indoors while also cleaning the air inside by including an array of plants inside their home.
Houseplants are not only beautiful but are beneficial to your overall health. NASA proved many years ago the power plants can have in an enclosed space. Their research revealed that houseplants clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. One 10-12” houseplant per square foot of space will purify the air from pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. These indoor air pollutants are commonly found in detergents, carpeting, furniture and paints.
Hicks Nurseries offers the largest selection of indoor house plants in New York. Of the many options, their favorite clean air houseplants are the ZZ Plant, Succulents, Bromeliads & the Peace Lily. The ZZ plant, or the Zamioculas zamiifolia, thrives in low light conditions and requires little water. The ZZ plant cleans the air of several chemicals including xylene and benzene. Next, are succulent plants. Succulents are available in many shapes, sizes and leaf patterns and are known for their ability to clean the air of harmful VOCs. They need tons of direct sunlight and well-drained soil. The Peace Lily, or Spathiphyllum hybrids, are gorgeous plants with deep green glossy leaves & pure white flowers. Peace Lily plants are known for their ability to break down toxic gasses such as benzene and carbon monoxide. Lastly is Bromeliads. Bromeliads are available in an assortment of varieties with a colorful, long lasting spike. They are one of the best plants for removing pollutants from the air and grow best in bright light conditions.
“Prior to shopping for a houseplant, think about where the plant will live in your home,” said Suzie Vezza, Green Goods Manager for Hicks Nurseries. “Consider how much sunlight the area receives and how tall of a plant you want. Our knowledgeable staff will help you choose the best plants for your specific space.”
Bring new houseplants into your home throughout the year. Their vibrant leaves and interesting textures will add beauty, while also cleaning the air you and your family breathe.
