How Window Tints Make Your Indoor Plants Healthier & Better

Indoor plants keep the air healthy by removing the toxins typically found in the atmosphere. This can prevent respiratory diseases, such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and the likes. There is a lot of evidence to show that indoor plants can help you sleep better at night.  This makes indoor plants beautiful additions to your living space.

On the other hand, there are window tints. They block the harmful rays of the sun from getting inside the house, helping you save more energy and money in the long run. It will also give you a better layer of security and privacy than any other window accessories can.

If the window tints will block off the sun, does it mean that indoor plants won’t thrive in a house where there is window tint?

Here’s the truth

Window films help the plant flourish. While they block the sun’s harmful UV rays by 99 per cent, they don’t block the blue and red rays that the plant needs to flourish and grow.

Some indoor plants will thrive with window tints because they require less light. If you have an indoor plant that has leaves with a darker shade of green, it means they need less light. Some indoor plants are also too delicate, and they will grow better inside a house with a window tint because the window tint can control the temperature that goes inside the house. Basically, the window tints will keep your plants retain the moisture that is on the soil, therefore requiring less water.

Just remember that there are fussy plants that are having a hard time adjusting to a new environment. However, don’t jump into conclusions that window tints are bad for indoor plants. Give your plants at least two months to get used to a unique situation. Some plants can adjust fast, and you’ll see them thriving again after a week.

Can window film kill indoor plants?

 

The flowering of your plant or new plant growth might be affected by the installation of the new window tints, especially when they’re positioned near the window where they receive plenty of sun love. However, this only affects the plants on a minimum level, so don’t panic. Give it time, and you’ll see that having installed the window tints will make their growth better than ever.

Important tips to remember

 

Not all plants have the same needs as others. If the leaves are darker, it means it needs less light. So you can move them to the more shaded areas in your house. However, you still have to bring them near the windows every now and then for a short period because they will need the sun’s good rays to flourish.

If the leaves are lighter, you have to keep them near the windows. Otherwise, they will wilt. Plants really don’t need the sun’s UV rays to grow. If you still think they do, you’re in for a surprise. If you don’t believe this, you can always see for yourself. Put the darker leaf plants near the windows and the lighter leaf plants far away from the windows.

Conclusion

 Window tints block UV rays, not the blue and red rays that the indoor plants need to survive. Therefore, adding window tints in your house is an excellent addition because it will help your indoor plants thrive better, aside from the many benefits it brings along with it.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
