    My love for the plant world grows and develops every year. The outside of my home looks like a jungle and we have plants throughout our home. I have had friends build me vertical shelving but I have out grown each new piece ;) . My family and I are moving from S. Tx to Oregon and to house my love we plan to re-create an aWarehouse into our Living Living space. I ill definitely be looking into artists like Mingo Design! thank you both Summer and Mingo Design, you have inspired me! :) Live the life you love!

    During the day you'd be getting more oxygen from the plants. But best not to have plants in your bedroom overnight - they respire too, which means they are using your oxygen, while not producing oxygen during hours of darkness.

    I hate to say it, but with so much humidity in the air there is likely to be damage to the structure.
