Why go outside when you can turn your home into a plant-filled paradise? Okay, okay—vitamin D and fresh air are pretty important, but sometimes crazy weather and hygge goals get in the way of your outdoorswoman habits. Pinterest’s latest trend report notes that creating a Zen space filled will nature is becoming increasingly popular for precisely those instances.

While indoor plants aren’t anything new, even for the most amateur of plant ladies, it’s worth noting that pins saved specifically for palm leaves and pampas grass—a feathery-looking plant that can reach up to 10 feet high—have increased by 136 percent and 500 percent, respectively.

Pinterest pins saved specifically for palm leaves and pampas grass—a feathery-looking plant that can reach up to 10 feet high—have increased by 136 percent and 500 percent, respectively.

Bringing plants into your home isn’t just a great way to help you relax and recharge, though; the greens offer some other impressive health benefits, too. For example, the air inside your home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside (yes, seriously!), and plants can help absorb toxins to improve the quality of the indoor oxygen with which you fuel your body.

So after you snag some palm leaves and pampas grass for decor purposes—and thanks to trendy faux blooms, no green thumb is required—stock up on greens that up the air quality in your home sanctuary. Snake plants, aloe plants, Boston ferns, spider plants, and ficus trees are all detoxifying and can turn your home into space where you’re more than happy to spend a lot of time.

Why stop with your living room when you can turn your bathroom into a lush tropical garden? Also, check out the three plant varieties that are about to take over your Insta feed.
