The best smart plants to improve your daily life

When you think about making your daily life better, smart plants probably aren't the first thing you think of. But there are myriad reasons as to how they can do just that. From air quality to not having to worry about if the grocery store has run out of basil, household plants can serve more purposes than just being decorative.

We know, plants are kind of a pain. They typically require a lot of care. But just like technology has moved into the future in other realms, it’s gotten more advanced when it comes to your favorite flora and keeping them healthy. We now have smart plants that can practically take care of themselves. So even if you have a black thumb of death (raising a hand over here), you can keep that aloe from dying.

Sure, houseplants look nice and add a certain level of sophistication to any room, but they serve more purposes than just that. Indoor plants can greatly improve your home’s air quality, and there are certain plants that are better at doing so, like dragons trees, English ivy, and Gerbera daisies. Though, if you’re looking to add plants to your home, and you have pets, be sure to make note of plants that harm animals.

And what’s better than having fresh herbs on-hand at all times? Forget about that bike ride to the supermarket. Or worrying about how many pesticides have touched that rosemary. When you grow at home, you can control that and eat organic foods.
