7 Benefits Of Indoor Plants On Seniors With Green Thumbs

Indoor-Herb-Garden[1]

Lifestyle

Growing older often means needing to adjust your hobbies and lifestyle. Activities that were once delightful and stimulating may now be too taxing or demanding. Thankfully, there are often ways to integrate the things you love, and to enjoy the benefits of indoor gardens on a healthy senior lifestyle.

Take it to the Garden

Gardening is a perfect example. Outdoor gardening can quickly become a difficult, very physical task. Moving dirt, bending down to dig or weed, or even walking down the garden path can all present a risk for injury. Thankfully, indoor gardening is a perfect option for seniors who have green thumbs and even those who don’t have much luck with large outdoor gardens.

Think of Health

Growing plants has a variety of health benefits. In general, gardening is associated with stress reduction and even lower blood pressure. Indoor gardeners can also reap those benefits. By focusing on the care and cultivation of a small, dependent life form, you provide yourself with daily purpose and theoretically with other benefits as well.

The Air we Breathe

Indoor gardens can actually help improve the air quality in your home. If you live in the city, especially if you have any sort of respiratory condition, the improved air quality may be the best argument for indoor gardening. Plants can get rid of harmful chemicals and increase oxygen levels.

Grow Lights

Finally, there could even be health benefits associated with exposure to grow lights. These lights release a spectrum of light meant to mimic the sun and stimulate plant growth. If you spend a long time indoors, your body may not get enough sunlight, which can affect your mood and even your health. Getting a little extra light from those plant lights could help stave off seasonal depression.

Safety

An indoor garden is as convenient as you want to make it. You can put it right on a counter or bar, leaving it at a convenient height that will require no lifting or moving on your part. That way, you can enjoy the serene beauty of your plants and provide care for them without straining your back or any of your joints. After all, staying safe in your golden years is important.

Family

Friends or family members can easily help you hang grow lights in a few minutes, ensuring that your hobby doesn’t generate any new sources of potential injury. It also helps you reduce the strain you place on yourself by gardening. Instead of needing to make a special trip out of the house every day, potentially carrying supplies, now you just have to pop into the room in your house that hosts your indoor garden.

Setting up an indoor garden is a lot of fun. With the right lights, you can have maintenance-free indoor growing for many years. Whether you’re growing large leafy plants for decorative purposes or herbs and salad greens to eat, indoor gardening is a very rewarding past time for seniors.

Beautiful Grow Light

Such a beautiful grow light! I’ve had it (the Large 40w version) for close to 1 year and have noticed a huge difference in the health of many of my houseplants. Shipping was fast, installation was easy breezy and I love the outlet timer functionality. Highly recommend.

Excellent

Wonderful track light. The warm color temperature and compact minimal design makes these track lights easy to live with. Appreciate how you can mix various beam angles on a single track to throw the right amount of light in the right place. I wish they were dimmable like the vita bulbs, would love to see that in future.

Already making a huge difference

I wanted to place a Ficus Lyrata in a specific location in my home but it didn’t get enough light and was struggling majorly. I’ve had this light for a week and “Frida” the fiddle leaf fig is already sooo much happier!
