“Even if you live in a little apartment there is a plant for you. There are huge benefits to indoor plants because it improves the air that you breathe and indoor plants act as a filter, plus it beautifies your space,” McCullough said. “For example, Air plants basically require no soil nor maintenance. You put them into little containers and the air along with a little water is all they require. Something like that is a small, green addition to your indoors but it adds incredible beauty as well as health benefits. Shoal Creek sells a wide variety of indoor plants from small and medium to large. I think with the many benefits of indoor plants there is something for everybody. ”
