The Benefits of Plants

The more time people have spent at home recently, the more many have realized how healing it is to have plants in the home. Whether you grow herbs and other edibles or flowers and decorative greenery, adding plants to the home really helps improve the quality of life. Benefits of houseplants include:

  • Reduced anxiety
  • Improved breathing / better air quality in the home
  • Better immunity, creating overall increased wellness
  • Improved self-esteem when taking care of another living thing
  • Better concentration and focus

Knitting and crochet also have many benefits including some of the same offered from houseplants. They reduce anxiety, increase concentration, and boost self-esteem. Therefore when you craft plant cozies, you boost the benefits of your houseplants.

Plant Cozies

Dress up your plant cozies with fun patterns and stripes, or just add some color to the outside of the plants. Most plant cozies are designed to go around the pot in which the plant sits. Of course, plants come in many different pots. Therefore, you’ll want to work with different sizes to suit your different houseplants. Remember that increasing or decreasing your knitting needle or crochet hook size is an easy way to make a pattern bigger or smaller. Likewise with changing yarn weights.

Plant Hangers

Plant hangers free up your counters and allow you to have more plants! They can also help keep children and pets from bothering plants. Some plants are toxic to pets, making it especially important to hang them out of the way. Therefore, you might want plant hangers as an alternative to plant cozies. In addition to some beautiful crochet plant hangers, we’ve also included a bunch of macrame plant hangers here. Macrame is a great technique for hanging plants. If you don’t know this craft, it’s relatively easy to learn. The patterns will guide you along the way.
