You can’t have plants to decorate if you don’t have much light at home
Many people believe that indoor plants need a lot of sunlight to live and grow healthy and happy. For this reason, they believe that you cannot grow them at home, unless you have a large window through which they can receive the sun’s rays.
Well, this is the first myth we are going to talk about today. While is true that many indoor species love natural light and they need it, many other plants (and some of them of great beauty) cannot bear to receive it directly. Moreover, the sun’s rays could burn them and spoil them.

Sleeping with plants in the bedroom is harmful to health
Surely you have heard it on more than one occasion, because it is a statement that is often repeated to satiety, despite being only a completely false myth.
It is true that at night plants consume oxygen and produce carbon dioxide. But nevertheless, the amount of oxygen that is stolen from us is so insignificant that do not pose any danger to our health, even for our night rest. So don’t be afraid to use plants to decorate your room.

As much, they bring relaxation and well-being to your life, helping you to eliminate negative vibrations and bad rolls at the mental level, although that is a subjective hit.
Talking with plants makes them grow more and better

It may help you to tell them about your problems and your worries, that it may be helpful for you to share your thoughts with them. But do not fool yourself, your friends plants what you say leaves them indifferent.
Of course, if talking about them translates into spend more time, take care of them more, pamper them and others, then they will surely thank you very much and will be splendid.
