While it's true that Hong Kong is home to some spectacular natural scenery, the vast majority of us city dwellers spend most of our time in a concrete jungle surrounded by walls and glass. With many of us spending more time indoors as of late, it's easy to feel a little cooped up in our inner-city apartments, where the view from our building is often one of...well, an identical building across the street.
Plants make a great addition to homes because they bring the outdoors in and perk up the place with a bit of nature. According to the Lung Institute and NASA's clean air studies – certain plants contribute to improving air quality, and therefore help to promote health and general wellbeing. Luckily for us, the city is home to various mini jungles that sell a wide array of plants – including some of the air-improving ones – areca palm, Chinese evergreens, snake plant, and pothos. Here are some of the places where you can get plants delivered to your door.
