New Tropical and Foliage Plants That Offer Hidden Benefits

Tropical and foliage plants can offer extra paybacks to your customers with health-promoting benefits like filtering the air, reducing stress, and absorbing noise. Studies show that being around plants can help people concentrate in the home and workplace. One study conducted in 2008 by psychology researchers Marc Berman, John Jonides, and Stephen Kaplan at the University of Michigan found that memory performance and attention spans improved by 20 percent after people spent an hour interacting with nature. And researchers believe that plants can help with mental fatigue. Therefore, offering tropical and foliage plants for the home and landscape has hidden benefits that offer added value to your customers. Consider these new varieties for your product mix in 2017.
