Obbligato: Your Guide to Indoor Plants & Planters

Adding greenery and plants to the home has become a hot trend in recent years, and rightfully so. With so many added benefits to bringing plants indoors, we can’t see why you wouldn’t want to make full use of this natural green focal point in your space. 

Not only do plants add a touch of natural beauty to your home, but they also offer a host of benefits for your physical and mental well-being. While faux plants may seem like an easy and convenient solution, incorporating real planters into your interior design can provide even more benefits.

Firstly, real plants improve the air quality in your home. They naturally filter out toxins and pollutants from the air, creating a healthier living environment for you and your family. In fact, a study by NASA found that some plants are able to remove up to 87% of air toxins in just 24 hours.

Additionally, plants have been shown to reduce stress and boost productivity. Studies have found that simply being around plants can help lower blood pressure and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. Having plants in your home can also increase your creativity and focus, making them a great addition to your workspace or home office.

What are some of the best indoor plants to consider?

Plants grow differently when inside, so it’s important to consider the right greenery to suit an indoor setting. Here are some of our top suggestions…

Snake Plant (Sansevieria):

This plant is known for its ability to remove toxins from the air and is very low maintenance, making it perfect for beginners.

ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia):

The ZZ plant is another low-maintenance option that can thrive in low light conditions and doesn’t need frequent watering.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum):

This plant is easy to care for and produces small plantlets that can be propagated and grown into new plants.

Pothos (Epipremnum aureum):

Pothos is a fast-growing plant that can thrive in low to medium light and is known for its ability to purify the air.

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum):

Peace lilies are a popular choice for their beautiful white flowers and ability to remove pollutants from the air.

Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema):

This plant is easy to care for and comes in a variety of colours and patterns, making it a great addition to any decor.

How to display your plants at home…

With so many great choices and varieties of plants on offer, you’ll be able to find a great fit to suit your space and style. However, when it comes to the display of your plants, you also want to give this equal consideration.

We suggest choosing a pot that adds to the aesthetic of your space but also considering the size of the plants and the location where it will be placed in the home. We are all for creating a little ‘moment’ with your plant displays and making it a focal point in your interior. Options include large pots and mosaic planters for a touch of colour and texture.

Obbligato mosaic planters are available in various styles and sizes. The planters are bespoke and made to order to suit specific applications and environments if required, working in conjunction with architects and interior designers.

The planters are ideal for low-maintenance plants such as succulents, cacti or architectural plants.

You can shop the look at Obbligato and bring a little colour (and greenery) to your home or office.

    Good evening,
    I am looking for tall and slender pots that can be used as part of my eco pool structure. Approximately 1.5 meters X 550 – 650 cm tall. Raw concrete pots may not last very well if converted. I only need a drainage whole at the bottom for the water pipe. Do you think you will be able to assist me in this regard? christa.c.devilliers@gmail.com
