Japanese Study: Plants Reduce Stress

Having a hard day at work? Stressed out about deadlines or bosses or meetings? It may help to stare at a plant, according to researchers from Japan.
The researchers felt that a lot of employees underestimated the respite that plants offer from work-related stress, so they conducted an experiment on workers at an electric company in Japan and observed their changes in stress levels pre- and post-involvement with plants.
The findings, recently published in the HortTechnology journal, showed that the number of employees with high scores on an anxiety measurement test decreased their scores slightly. Another 27% of employees in the study showed a significant decrease in resting heart rate.

House Taken Over By Plants

Here are some really creative and fun plant designs from the Royal Horticultural Society in their take over of RHS Garden Wisley. 

Excerpted from The Giant Houseplant Takeover


Step inside the Glasshouse at RHS Garden Wisley to discover a reimagined, abandoned Victorian house reclaimed by its plants - enjoy our spectacular Glasshouse display from 25 January until 1 March 2020.

In a clever twist on the use of houseplants, you can see a parlour palm reclining by the fireplace, playing chess with cacti and succulents, bromeliads lazing in the bedroom, carnivorous climbers munching their way through the kitchen and a giant staghorn fern taking a bath!  Here are some photos below:

Spotlight: Maranta (Prayer Plant)


Spotlight: Maranta

Marantas are small and fairly easy to grow plants. Their common name is Prayer Plant because their leaves roll up at night and resemble a pair of hands in prayer. Not only do the leaves move at dusk and dawn, but the leaves also move around throughout the day to follow the sun. Native to Brazil's rain forest, Prayer Plants like indirect light and will tolerate some shade. They like moist but well-draining soil and tend to prefer high humidity to thrive.

Prayer plants are named for Bartolomeo Maranta, an Italian physician and botanist from the 16th century.  About 40 species of Marantas exist, with the main ones native to the rainforests of Brazil.  In addition to Marantas from  South America, other species of Marantas are native to Asia and Africa.

Marantas are typically grown commercially in small 4-6" pots. Due to their small and compact size, Prayer plants make good hanging baskets. According to the ASPCA, Prayer plants are popular houseplants which are non-toxic to both humans and pets.

Marantas prefer sheltered shaded areas in their native habitat. Prayer plants typically grow in areas in nature that are protected from the wind and cold temperatures.  Since they don't have tendrils, they aren't climbers and only grow about 12" tall.  As indoor plants, prayer plants like an indirect light and will tolerate some shade.  They like moist but well-draining soil. They tend to like high humidity to thrive and do well when placed on a dish filled with pebbles and water.  Usually Marantas are moderate growers that do well repotted every two years in the Spring.

There are three common varieties readily available  - the red Maranta, the green Maranta and the Lemon Lime Maranta.  The red Maranta has red veins with a greenish yellow center portion and green to blackish green background.  See photos below:




Lemon Lime Maranta

Prayer plants add a beautiful pop of color to any space.
