Are you a true plant lover? Then creating your own urban jungle is perfect for you. There are many houseplants that bring a tropical atmosphere and which are perfect for an urban jungle. The more houseplants, the better it seems. This does not have to be the case. You can make your urban jungle as big as you want. The houseplants in this category not only look beautiful, but some of these houseplants also have air purifying properties. 

Air purifying houseplants are ideal for the office or bedroom, but of course you can put them in any room in the house. These houseplants purify the air of unpleasant substances and ensure that you can breathe easy. They improve indoor air quality by filtering the air, but these houseplants also affect the humidity in the house. Better humidity in combination with air that is fresh of harmful substances ensures a better quality of sleep and more focus during the day. For this reason, these houseplants are often placed in the office or in a bedroom. 

What is an urban jungle?

An urban jungle is really just a jungle in your own home. Many houseplants and therefore a lot of green give a real jungle atmosphere to your home. Anyone who loves houseplants will agree that houseplants can give you a happy feeling. Houseplants ensure that a space has a peaceful atmosphere, you come to rest. An urban jungle does not have to be big, you can make it as big as you want. 

No green fingers, but still an urban jungle? It can be done! 

You don't need green fingers to make your own urban jungle at home! Tropical houseplants are native to tropical regions, where they are used to a humid environment. They generally require more water and a bit more care. But consider, for example, the Dracaena Green. This houseplant is suitable for anyone who finds it difficult to keep houseplants alive and really survives in any home! 

If you start your own urban jungle is very important to prepare well. For example, do you already have a plant sprayer and watering can in the house? The tropical houseplants in this category are used to a humid climate and therefore love water. Many houseplants also like to be sprayed every now and then! It is also not unimportant to purchase good pots and baskets for your new green friends. 

Which houseplants are indispensable in your urban jungle

Think of the Strelitzia Nicolai and Strelitzia Augusta, both of which have large leaves that really make them stand out. They provide a perfect hiding place for pets in the summer, but beware! The Strelitzia is slightly toxic to pets and for this reason is not among the pet-friendly houseplants.
