Concentration and Memory. Being around plants helps people concentrate better in the home and workplace. Studies show that tasks performed while under the calming influence of nature are performed better and with greater accuracy, yielding a higher quality result. Moreover, being outside in a natural environment can improve memory performance and attention span by twenty percent.

Other advantages are:

  • Physical and Mental benefits- As shown in example.
  • Aesthetics – They’re aesthetically pleasing to look at.
  • Mood boosters – They can make you happy.
  • Decoration- Great to make any space instantly liven up.


Today, I saw the opportunity to own my first terrarium. My mother and my sister have an affinity for planting gardens. On the other hand I am not the gifted, but I decided to try it in my own way. The popular rise of terrariums are unique because they’re rather low maintenance and instantly give life to your personal space. They are also intriguingly great for creative space since you can decorate them to your liking.

As in Day 15, Sakura named me 咲希 (Click here to read), she hoped that my future would continue to blossom.
