A Planted Bird Room

Turn your home into a jungle for your bird

By David A. Silver

Pet birds enjoy a lot of greenery in their room“Our home is like a jungle!” When our children were younger, I would often hear this comment when they were talking to their friends. I took the statement as more of a commentary on all the plants in our home rather than as a complaint. Even our own friends would comment on all the plants in the house.

When asked, “Why so many plants?” I would say that, besides enjoying all the greenery, I really liked the noticeable increase in humidity in the rooms, especially in the winter. Besides, I would point out, the plants give off oxygen, they filter the air by removing carbon dioxide, and the plants can even remove some of the harmful toxins present in the air. And on top of all that, the plants provide a more natural and stress-free environment. And if all these benefits are good for humans, they are especially true for birds.
