It’s true when we say plants make people happy. When you feel a little low, it’s amazing how a walk outside can do wonders. When we get in touch with nature, we reduce mental fatigue and stress, while increasing relaxation and self-esteem. Even brief exposure to nature has been shown to have these benefits. Indoor plants provide similar perks too. Not only do they enhance the overall appearance of any interior space, but houseplants have been shown to boost moods, increase creativity and productivity, reduce stress, and eliminate indoor air pollutants. Plants don’t just look good, they make us feel good too.
California’s favorite type of plant loves its homestate’s sunny, warm weather. No humidity? No problem. Drought-tolerant succulent plants prefer dry environments. They’re defined by their moisture-storing capacity and come from many botanical families. In fact, many succulent plants are not related to one another at all, but have many characteristics in common. Plus, they’re real cute. Bring the California outdoors in by filling your sunny sills with an assortment of our favorite succulents hand-potted in our stylish earthenware pots and planters.
