WHY? These plants oxy­genate the air and come in a range of colours, so get one to match your bed­room decor!

HOW TO CARE

FOR IT: Wa­ter once the soil feels dry, but spar­ingly and not in the fo­liage where it will ac­cu­mu­late and rot. Use an orchid pot­ting mix and change this ev­ery two years. Trim off the flow­ers when they start to brown.

WHERE TO KEEP

IT: A west- or east­fac­ing win­dow is ideal, or any­where it can get plenty of light with­out be­ing in di­rect sun.

ALSO GOOD:

Laven­der plants have a sooth­ing smell – ideal for your bed­side ta­ble.
