Indoor Plants to clean the air

How do you think your lungs react towards the air you are breathing?

Polluted air is not only outside our houses, but also it is there inside our kitchen, dinning rooms, and even our bedrooms. That is why you should not ignore cleaning up the air you are breathing naturally. You can easily do that by having some certain kinds of plants whose function is primarily to clean the air.

According to the NASA studies, the following plants clean indoor air very well:

Epipremnum aureum


Effectively purifies the air of benzene. Its broad leaves help to absorb a large amount of pollutants. It is an easily grown plant that does not require any special conditions, making it a good choice for decoration and air-cleaning in many homes.

Chlorophytum comosum


It is an attractive plant that also makes a wonderful air-cleaner. It’s known for absorption of gas emissions! Spider plants, its code name,  are incredibly easy to grow, so if you are a beginner in gardening, this is a great start for you. With lots of rich foliage and tiny white flowers, the spider plant neutralizes benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene-a solvent used in the leather, rubber and printing industries.

Hedera helix (common ivy, English ivy)


this works amazingly when it comes to purifying the air you breathe. It holds a natural ability to filter airborne pollutants including benzene, formaldehyde, xylene and toluene.

Areca Palm


Benefits: General air purifier, especially as it grows larger. It’s known for being one of the better performers in purifying the air.

Notes: Moderately drought tolerant and prefers partial sun and well-drained soil.

Baby Rubber Plant


Benefits: These houseplants clean the air by emitting high oxygen content, and purifies indoor air by removing chemicals, such as formaldahyde or other toxins.

Notes: Likes filtered light, infrequent watering and rich soil. I’ve found conflicting information as to whether or not this plant contains any poisonous parts.

Thank you

Love you all
