Any of the plants in the picture are great for keeping your home healthy.  Lets dig a little deeper into a few of them:

  • Orchids: may seem like a hard to plant to care for, but they actually thrive on neglect.  Don’t kill them with kindness (too much water and sunlight).  They filter: xylene , a pollutant found in many glues and paints.  Orchids respire and give off oxygen at night – so they’re great for the bedroom!  And they just look so good in decor which is win/win!

  • Palms:  hardy, exotic-looking, and easy to grow, palms filter formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide

  • Philodendrons need very little attention. They filter xylene, a toxin found in glues and leathers.

  • Aloe Vera – Aloe is mostly know for medical uses like relieving burns, but it’s also easy to keep alive, and sculptural-looking. Also, aloe filters formaldehyde!
