We do not think too much about the air we breathe in our homes. Unfortunately, many unwanted toxins can hide in the space where we live. Although air purifiers can tackle air purification and detoxification, they can also be noisy and expensive.

Fortunately, there is a wide variety of plants that can be used so effectively to purify the air around us. Not to mention a lush green plant adds a lot more to decorating your home than a bulky air purifier.

Below we have listed five indoor plants that are duplicating. They are welcome in any interior decorating style while striving to clean the air of the toxins that can make you sick, as well as your family. For a more complete list of what can be hidden in your air, see our article on household VOCs.

Rubber factory

Advantages of the rubber factory: Although “rubber” does not seem particularly clean, rubber factories purify the air perfectly by emitting a high oxygen content. Their smooth, thick, oblong leaves make a unique look. Rubber plants can grow up to eight feet tall.

How to care for them: Rubber plants are easy to maintain and require indirect sunlight (think: behind a veil). Water when the soil is dry, but no more – yellowed leaves indicate excessive watering. This plant is also toxic to cats and dogs.

Bamboo Palm

Benefits of Bamboo Palm: The bamboo palm removes almost all the toxins from the palm while acting as a natural dehumidifier. Bamboo Palm also has a significance in Feng Shui, where the number of stems correlates with some prosperity or luck.

How to take care of it: The bamboo palm thrives with indirect light, pleasant temperatures and rich soil. Sprinkle with purified water at room temperature when the soil begins to feel dry. Make sure your pot has drainage – stagnant water is bad news for this lucky charm.

lilyturf

Benefits of Lilyturf: Lilyturf grows outward rather than upwards, which earned her her pretty name, “Creeping Lilyturf”. Charming. However, Lilyturf gives you even more scary things like formaldehyde and ammonia. He also earns points for his lavender flowers that bloom in summer and fall.

How to take care of it: Lilyturf is usually covered with earth outside but also lives very well indoors. A mixture of sun and shade, weekly watering and you are on the way to a happy and terrifying plant.

Advantages of the dwarf date palm: Do not let the name “dwarf” fool you, these attractive Asian palms can still push up inside with proper care! Their long palms make an impressive statement in all interiors, while working to flush toxins out of your air.

How to deal with them: These indoor palms do not require much maintenance. They thrive in moist, fertile, well-drained soil, as well as in the direct or indirect rays of the sun. Bonus points if you water it with hot water. No need for size.

Barberton Daisy

Benefits of Barberton Daisy: A beautiful daisy is a joyful addition to any home, but the real beauty lies in what one can not see (poetic, no?) Barberton Daisy fights benzene, formaldehyde, xylene and toluene. They also consume carbon dioxide, releasing pure oxygen all night long. This is a real reason to sleep more easily.

How to care for them: Lovers of light, Barberton Daisy is at its best when bathed in light. You can even consider giving them some outdoor time in the summer. With all these exposures, be sure to keep the soil moist.
