Sleepless nights spent tossing and turning only leads to feeling less productive and energized the next morning. If you’re consistently falling short on sleep, try filling your bedroom with foliage! Not only will houseplants create an oasis-like atmosphere, but also aid in a better night’s sleep. Check out our top 5 bedroom houseplants!

  1. Snake Plant

The Snake Plant, also dubbed “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue,” is known for its spunky nickname and stiff green leaves. Aside from its modern look, it has natural air purifying qualities that are perfect for the bedroom. It helps to remove toxins by transforming carbon dioxide into oxygen at night, so you can breathe easily for a more restful sleep.

Place this plant in an area of your bedroom that receives indirect sunlight and water it sparingly. Even if you neglect a Snake Plant, it will reward you by purifying the air with plenty of style!

2. Spider Plant

The Spider Plant is one of the most common house plants, known for its long and dangly leaves! These graceful plants work well in hanging pots or atop shelves or tables to allow their beauty to be on full display. Aside from their aesthetic, they provide wonderful sleep benefits by producing oxygen and purify the air while absorbing toxins.


Similar to the Snake Plant, the Spider Plant does not require much attention in order to thrive! Place this plant in an area of your bedroom that receives indirect sunlight and water it when the soil is completely dry.

3. Peace Lily

The Peace Lily provides your bedroom with an elegant aesthetic. Like many houseplants, the Peace Lily is known for purifying the air, breaking down toxins through the pores in it’s leaves. The added bonus is that it can increase room humidity by up to 5%, which is great for pesky allergies and colds!

Despite its elegance, The Peace Lily is a relatively low maintenance houseplant! It thrives in low light conditions and only needs water once a week or when it begins to droop.

4. Aloe Vera

This widely used medicinal plant is a great addition to your bedroom, being well known for its amazing antibacterial properties. It works much like the Snake Plant, emitting oxygen at night for a more restful slumber. You can also use the gel from the plant as a topical treatment for minor cuts, burns and insect bites. It’s simply a must have in every home!

The Aloe Vera grows best in dry conditions, as they cannot tolerate standing water. Place it in an area of your bedroom that receives plenty of bright light, and refrain from over watering.

  1. 5. Rubber Plant

Rubber Plants are enjoyed as either a medium-sized house plant or grown to become a beautiful indoor tree, up to eight feet tall! Their large leaves absorb airborne chemicals and break them down. They also absorb exhaled carbon dioxide and convert it into breathable oxygen for cleaner air in the bedroom.

Rubber Plants are tolerant of neglect and thrive even in dim light. Be sure to allow the soil to dry out completely between watering.
