5 Indoor Plants That Purify The Air
If you are looking for ways to make your home a little greener without the hassle, then look no further! We have five indoor plants that are incredibly easy to take care of, adapt to almost any environment and are perfect for anyone that does not have a great track record of keeping our green friends alive! These plants help purify the air of chemicals and other pollutants naturally, and they aid in adding extra oxygen into your home!
Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)
This is one of the plants that everyone should place in each room of their home. They are known for releasing oxygen at night which ultimately will provide a better sleep. Research studies have shown that these plants can produce enough oxygen for us to breathe normally when placed in an air-sealed room! How cool is that?!
ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas or Zanzibar Gem)
This plant is about as tough as it gets, originating from Eastern Africa. It can survive/adapt to pretty much any condition and does not require natural light to thrive. It can also go weeks without watering (we all know this is the hardest part about keeping plants alive). It also purifies the air and removes harsh chemicals/pollutants.
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)
This is one of the best plants for people who work long hours or travel often. They can thrive with zero natural light and go weeks without being watered. Their lush green leaves emit oxygen and filter air pollutants and toxins!
Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosum)
This is a household favorite, commonly seen in hanging baskets from the ceiling! Not only are they a pretty accent, they can also tolerate any lighting conditions, purify the air, and filter toxins.
The aloe vera plant has been around for centuries, used for both agricultural and medicinal purposes. This amazing little plant packs a lot power! It has been known to remove 90% of formaldehyde from the air after 24 hours. It also absorbs the nasty dust that floats around causing 99% of indoor allergies! Not only does it clean the air, it can also be used for such things as burns, digestion issues, acne, and so much more.
