One of the most loved parts of any beautiful landscape would be the foliage. There is something about relaxing in the outdoors while surrounded by beautiful flowers, plants, trees and other flora. There is a serene calmness that seems to be attached to these integral parts of nature that people gravitate to. Many people try to get a slice of that beauty by bringing it indoors. One of the biggest sellers in the garden department at your home store is the house plant section. You may not know this, but many folks use house plants for cleaner indoor air. The reason for this is many plants have the ability to remove toxins from the air, ergo making it better air for you. Some of the most popular for this purpose are the fern, palm, dracaena, lily, fig and water plant. One niche that is gaining popularity is online sales of live house plants and an industry leader is Costa Farms.
Costa Farms has mission statement that really does say it all about them and explains why they are a leader in their field. It states, “To develop the best Team in the industry, create Solutions for our customers and position ourselves to capitalize on Growth opportunities”. In 1961, Jose Costa, Sr. bought 30 acres in Miami and grew tomatoes in the winter and the exotic Calamondin orange in the summer. His business grew and in 1973 he purchased property in the Dominican Republic. In addition, they have locations in North and South Carolina and China.Today, the company boasts 4,200 acres and 2,800 employees. One of their most popular areas of the business is their Houseplant Division.
Costa Farms is involved in an effort to spread the word that plants provide clean and fresh indoor air. This grassroots campaign called “O2 for You: Houseplants with a purpose”, is an initiative to make your home, work place and our schools have cleaner indoor air. I was sent a variety of indoor house plants, including a 10-inch Boston Fern, a 6-inch Dracaeana, a 5-inch orchid, and a 4-inch parlor palm, all in pots. The plants are full, fresh, vibrant and healthy. The pots are top notch and just tie in the whole look of the plants. I love the look of live house plants in my home and these beautiful additions are just perfect for my decor. It is also great to know that these plants will help my family breathe easier by removing toxins from the air.
