Plants for the Homes

Air Filtering Plants

Florist Mum and the peace lily took the top spots when it comes to air cleaning.  They are both effective at removing amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and ammonia from the air.  Recommendation is having at least one plant per 100 square feet of space. 

The Snake plant is another really popular air-purifying house plant because they’re beautiful and basically impossible to kill — the perfect option if you’re a neglectful young adult.

The Bamboo Palm -This air-purifying palm thrives in shady indoor spaces so it’s a great addition your bedroom or bathroom, especially if you’re going for tropical ~island~ vibes.

Dumb canes come in a variety of beautiful multicolored leaf patterns and they’re super easy to grow and keep as house plants. But they’re actually called dumb canes because of their poisonous effect when eaten, which can slur or stop speech and even close the throat and be fatal in large quantities.  So please make sure to keep them away from young children and pets.
