The Best Indoor Plants For Air Quality
As most homeowners spend a significant amount of their time in their home (especially if you include sleeping!), it’s very important that the time spent indoors is surrounded by clean, fresh, and healthy air. Although some may opt for a high-tech air purifier, plants also provide a natural solution to cleaning up the air in your home. Here are the top plants for air purification and where they are best suited in your home!
The Living Room Plant
The Areca Palm (or Chrysalidocarpus lutescens) is does great air cleansing work during the day. About 4 shoulder height plants per person should do the trick.
The Bedroom Plant
The Mother-in-law's Tongue (or Sansevieria trifasciata) takes over by converting CO2 to O2 at night. You want about 6 to 8 of these waist high plants per person
The Specialist Plant
The Money Plant (or Epipremnum aureum) does the job of filtering out removing Formaldehyde and other VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds).
