Add Plants for Cleaner Air

One of the first things I did when setting up my daughter's nursery was put in a nice lush green houseplant.  I wanted her to breathe air that was as clean as possible.

NASA study found the following indoor plants were most effective in removing formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide from the air:

  • Bamboo palm

  • Chinese evergreen

  • English ivy

  • Gerbera daisy

  • Janet Craig Dracaena

  • Marginata Dracaena

  • Mass cane/corn plant (Dracaena)

  • Mother-in-law’s tongue

  • Pot mum (Chrysanthemum)

  • Peace lily

Also - make sure you air out the house (open the windows up) as often as possible, to let toxins out and fresh air in!
