8 Indoor Plants for Clean Air
We have to spend a lot of time indoors nowadays; that’s why it makes sense to take care of the air quality in our houses and working places. But there’s no need to splurge on the most expensive air purifier or move your office into the middle of the woods. There are many air purifying indoor plants you can use for this purpose, just check our plant identification app. They cost way less and will make your home or office look nice. Start with one or two from our list, and then, who knows, maybe you’ll end up with a real greenhouse!
1. Devil’s Ivy
This plant is easy to grow, and it fights off household toxins well. The devil’s ivy is perfect for decorating any apartment: its cascading tendrils will make you feel as if you are in a jungle!
2. Peace Lily
Peace lilies are easy to grow and very undemanding. They don’t need direct or bright sunlight and can be watered once a week. They are very elegant and will add a stylish touch to your room.
One more plant that will freshen up your room. A great option if you are at work all day; it just needs moderate watering and indirect sunlight.
4. Spider Plant
Spider plants are your choice if you don’t get on well with plants in general. They can survive in pretty much any environment, love shady apartments, and will clean your air just because they can.
5. Rubber plant
This beauty is native to India and can grow pretty happily in a small pot as well as in a bigger one. Don’t forget to place it in bright but filtered light and water once a week in summer and once a fortnight in winter.
6. Boston Fern
Also called the sword fern, this plant loves humid environments, so you can grow it in a large bathroom or near the window in a hanging basket. It appreciates regular misting and grows better if you cut its fronds a bit each winter.
Ficus is native to southeast Asia and is a perfect choice if you want a full-fledged tree at home. These plants can grow between 2 and 10 feet (0.6 and 3 meters) tall. They prefer bright indirect sunlight and weekly watering. Choose Ficus if you like clean air and want to turn your home into a small garden.
8. Snake Plant
The snake plant can reach 6.5 feet (2 meters) in height. It’s another fantastic option if you want a tree at home but have little time to care for it. The plant will happily thrive in neglect and purify your air without asking for much in return. This plant loves bright direct light and dry soil.
