Studies have shown that there are many benefits of plants in your environment.  In the workplace, the presence of houseplants reduced fatigue by 30%.  Cough decreased by 37% and dry throat by 25%.

There are also psychological benefits to having houseplants – there is measurable reduction in stress, increased ability to re-focus attention, improved performance on cognitive tasks, mental restoration and reduced mental fatigue.
