Numerous studies from sources such as NASA, Texas A&M University and others show that houseplants provide many benefits such as: Relieve stress, boost mood and help with concentration:

According to a study done by Texas A&M University, having houseplants around your home and workplace can improve not only your creative performance but also problem-solving skills. Additionally, scientists from the University of Exeter discover that plants can boost your concentration, productivity and well-being by 47 percent. Further research suggests that plants throughout your home and workspace can reduce stress levels, bringing the phenomenon 'biophilia' (a love for nature) indoors. Freshen up the air in our homes:

While we breathe oxygen in and release carbon dioxide, plants are doing the opposite - releasing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide. Based on extensive research by NASA, houseplants can remove up to 87 percent of air toxins in 24 hours. Furthermore, houseplants can help regulate humidity in the air through the plants foliage. So if you're really looking to decrease your humidity look for plants with larger leaves.
