5 Indoor Plants for a Healthier Home Environment

Toxins can hide in the air in your home. Unfortunately, you can’t see them. Your best protection is to grow these home plants and let them rid your home of airborne pollutants.

 

Chrysanthemum

 

Let’s start with the brightest and prettiest of them all. Chrysanthemum flowers can clear the air of toxins such as benzenes and ammonia that are released from common household items such as detergents and plastics.

Planting advises: Try to place the flower in pots under a sun-lit area. Water daily, especially when the soil is dry.

Pro tip: Reduce indoor temperatures by placing the flower in wall plant holders and cover walls exposed to sunlight.

 

Snake Plant

 

Also known as the mother-in-law’s tongue, this succulent plant is one of several plants that releases oxygen at nighttime. It can clear the air of the following compounds.

  • Benzene
  • Toluene
  • Formaldehyde
  • Xylene
  • Trichloroethylene

Planting advises: Don’t overwater as the plant is prone to rot in moist soil.

Pro tip: Keep your plants away from the reach of your pets and children. You can place them high on wall planters. If there is light, the plant will thrive.

Spider Plant

 

Great for newbies and people who aren’t blessed with green thumbs. This hardy plant will thrive with minimal care. It’s a carbon dioxide hog and also absorbs xylene. This plant is also non-toxic to kids and pets.

Planting advises Water the plant when you notice the soil is dry. Use spray bottles so you can control the amount of water as the plant is prone to root rot if you overwater it.

Pro tip: The plant grows rapidly. Occasionally, ‘spiderettes’ will pop up and you can report them and grow your spider plant family. They also make great gifts to friends.

Aloe Vera

This succulent plant can thrive anywhere. You can place it in wall planters indoor or in small pots on your coffee table or kitchen window. Aside from cleaning the air, aloe vera can also be used for home remedies. Break off a leaf and rub the soap on your skin to treat burns, skin disorders or just moisturize your skin.

Planting advises: Like most succulents, aloe vera doesn’t need too much water. Use spray bottles to moisten the soil and place under sunlit areas.

Pro tip: You can harvest the leaves for home remedies without hurting the plant. In fact, you may have to remove leaves from time to time, so the plant won’t suffocate in its pot.

Barberton Daisy

Looking for more color indoors? The Barberton daisy blooms yellow, orange, red and even pink flowers. The plant can clean up most toxic fumes from household cleaners, paints, and detergents.

Planting advises: Please in a well-lit room in a pot that will drain excess water. Avoid overwatering or soaking the soil.

Pro tip: Flowers bloom for 4 to 6 weeks. After this, you can cut the spent flowers to allow new ones to bloom.
