 cacti

Just like succulents, cacti have water storage capacity, for those who have a busy life with little time to dedicate it is a good option, watering can be done once a week during the summer, in the winter once a month, do not water in a shorter time than this because they can die, I leave them close to windows where the sun shines they love it and they look even more beautiful. For those who enjoy a minimalist style, it is perfect, because it has that whole desert vibe in its origin, it is very stylish.

Remembering that all plants produce oxygen, and absorb carbon dioxide, this is what we learned since childhood in science class, however, it is important to research about other species that you want to insert indoors, because in addition to oxygen there are plants which may release other substances that may not be advisable to keep indoors. The ones listed in this post are very popular and can perfectly be grown indoors.
