Do you want to lessen the amount of pollutants in your house? The germs and pollutants you can’t see are typically the most dangerous, but thankfully, these air-cleaning plants may help you get rid of them and improve air quality. Adopt any one of these plants for air-purifying features (haha)
1. Pothos or Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)
Devil’s ivy, often known as pothos or golden pothos, is a low-maintenance indoor houseplant protected against common household impurities. It grows nicely in water, pots, and hanging baskets and offers instant colour to any area with flowing tendrils. It’s also been said that keeping the heartleaf philodendron alive is more difficult than killing it!
2. Phoenix roebelenii, also known as dwarf date palm
The palm family’s babies are dwarf or Pygmy palms. They grow up to six to ten feet tall in partial shade, with fronds that can also reach six feet! They are very beautiful to plant around the yard and may add a tropical vibe; you will feel 100 % on vacation when you are at home.
3. Lily of the Peace (Spathiphyllum)
Peace lilies, also known as spathiphyllum, are simple and low-maintenance plants. Their glossy green leaves lend a touch of class to any environment, especially those with little light. Water them weekly and fertilize them with a slow-release fertilizer in the spring to encourage the development of those beautiful white blossoms.
With its heart-shaped leaves, the philodendron is a lush complement to indoor areas. Philodendrons are generally simple to care for, requiring only moderate water and bright, indirect sunlight.
5. Spider Plant also known as Chlorophytum comosum
Spider plants are an excellent alternative for beginners and people who have had a terrible experience with plants in the past. They thrive in indirect sunlight and will survive in almost any environment (temperatures as low as 2 degrees). Spider plants also produce spiderettes, which are young spider plants.
6.Chrysanthemums (Chrysanthemum morifolium)
Chrysanthemums, also known as disbuds or mums, are not only a beautiful addition to any floral arrangement, but they also look fantastic in your house and are one of the most effective air purifiers available. They’re one of the more challenging air filters to grow, but the reward is gorgeous colourful blossoms. They benefit from strong air circulation, bright in direct sunshine, and only warm water watering, as long as they can dry completely between sips.
7. Rubber plants (Ficus elastic)
These burgundy evergreen trees are resilient plants that like bright, filtered light and weekly maintenance in the summer and biweekly irrigation in the winter. Rubber plants can be grown in a small pot or planted directly in the ground to grow into a giant interior tree.
8. Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata v. Bostoniesis)
This easy-to-grow fern has sword-shaped fronds that look great in a hanging basket or on a pedestal. The Boston Fern demands regular wetness and thrives in damp settings. Regular watering, wet soil, and placement in indirect sunshine near windows, balconies, and patios will keep them happy. Cut the fronds down by about 2 inches in the winter to let them renew and grow in the warmer months.
9.Areca palms (Chrysalidocarpus lutescens)
Areca palms work well in larger settings. They are quite effective at removing pollutants, and they are non-toxic to both dogs and cats. Give them plenty of water (a couple of times a week) during the summer, but not as much in the winter.
10. Pineapple Plant
According to a recent NASA study, pineapple plants can genuinely stop snoring. Even though they don’t remove any contaminants from the air, NASA states that “pineapple plants produce oxygen and enhance air quality at night, which could improve sleep quality and reduce snores.” These plants are extremely tough and can survive with very little water, but they are not resistant to frost and despise the cold.
