 Benefits Of Houseplants!

During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen.  The opposite of when you breathe, your body takes in oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.  This pattern makes plants and people natural partners.  Adding plants to your home or office can increase oxygen levels.

As part of the photosynthetic and respiratory processes, plants release moisture vapor, which increases humidity of air around them.  Plants release roughly 97 percent of the water they take in.  Studies at the Agricultural Univeristy of Norway document that using plants in your home or office decreases the incidence of dry skin, colds, sore throats and dry coughs.

Plants also, remove toxins from the air.  Up to 87 percent of the volatile organic compounds every 24 hours, according to NASA research.  The NASA research discovered that plants purify the air by pulling contaminants into soil, where the root zone microorganisms convert them into food for the plant.

At Kansas State University research shows that adding plnats to hospital rooms speeds recovery rates of surgical patients. Patients in rooms with plants requested less pain medication, have lower heart rates and blood pressure, experience less fatigue and anxiety.  The Dutch Product Board for Horticulture did a study that discovered that adding plants to office settings decreases fatigue, colds, headaches, coughs, sore throats and flu-like symptoms.

A study at the Royal College of Agriculture in England, found that students demonstrate 70 percent more attentiveness when taught in rooms containing plants.

Jolly Lane Greenhouse has a wide variety of houseplants for your home and office.  Stop in and see us for all the benefits houseplants provide.

Jolly Lane Tips

Helpful Tips To Care For Plants In The Office!

A small plant on your desk makes your work day a little cheerier by bringing a bit of nature indoors.  Plants in the office may even boost your creativity and make you feel more productive.  Plants have been proven to improve indoor air quality.


Improper watering - either too much or not enough is usually to blame when plant care goes awry.  When the top of the soil feels dry to the touch water plants slowly, using lukewarm water, until water trickles out the drainage holes.  Never water if the soil still feels damp from the previous watering.

Allow the plant to drain thoroghly and never allow the pot to stand in water.  There are a couple of ways to accomplish this.  Either take the plant to a sink and water it straight from the tap, then let it drain before returning it to the saucer.  If you don't have a sink, water the plant, allow it to drain for a few minutes, and then pour excess water out of the saucer.


Some plants can get by with very little light.  Others require bright light.  Ask us at Jolly Lane Greenhouse and we can help you determine how much light your plant will need.  Don't put any plnat too close to a window, because hot sunlight will scorch most plants.

Other Tips:

Fertilize desk plants every other month during spring and summer using a general purpose, water-soluble fertilizer.

Place your desk plant away from air conditioners, heating vents or drafty windows.

Ask a friend or co-worker to take care of your plant if you're sick or on vacation.  Some plants can tolerate a certain amount of neglect, but too much may kill them.

Jolly Lane Greenhouse has a large variety of foliage plants suitable for any office, and we have a knowledgeable staff that can help you pick the best choice for any office.
