There are many indoor plants that can improve the air quality in your home. Some of them are even good for removing harmful chemicals from the air.
The best house plant to purify air is one that is low-maintenance and produces lots of oxygen. In addition, it must be a non-toxic plant that you can keep around pets or children.
Chlorophytum comosum, or spider plant, is a great choice for this reason. It is easy to grow and doesn’t need too much sunlight. It also has a long lifespan and grows well in small pots or in hanging baskets.
English ivy (Hedera helix) is another popular and effective air-purifying houseplant. It requires bright indirect light and water once a week, or whenever the soil feels dry. It can be grown on topiary forms, or in hanging baskets and will look good in almost any room.
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema modestum) is a lovely indoor plant that can help remove harmful toxins from the air. Like other tropical plants, they prefer warm temperatures and medium to low light conditions, but should be kept away from drafts.
Flamingo lily (Anthurium) is another great air-purifying houseplant that can help you get rid of harmful chemicals. This plant is easy to care for and loves bright indirect light and watering one to two times a week. Its gorgeous flowers will also add color to your room, and it is a perfect companion for a sunny window.
Golden pothos (Epipremnum aureum) is another low-maintenance air-purifying plant that is great for removing toxins from the air. This plant is easy to care for and needs little attention, so it’s a good choice for the first-time gardener.
Snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata) is also a wonderful air-purifying plant. It can help to filter out formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene and other airborne toxins.
Peace lily (Epipremnum sagittate) is another great option for those looking for a low-maintenance air-purifying houseplant. This plant has large leaves that can absorb more carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen, which helps to eliminate toxins in the air.
These beautiful flowers come in a variety of colors and make for a colorful and bright accent in your home. They can be grown in hanging baskets, in a pot, or in a flower bed to add a pop of color and coloration to your space.
Areca palms (Chrysalidocarpus lutescens) are great for reducing toxins in the air, as they can filter out VOCs including benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. They are an excellent choice for homes with limited space, and they can easily grow to 6 feet tall.
The best air-purifying houseplants include those that are fast-growing and that produce a lot of leaves. The largest leaves are the best, as they will have more surface area and can capture more toxins. Additionally, plants that have thick and glossy leaves are also better at capturing toxins than smaller ones.
