Indoor plants breathe life into your space

NASA has assembled a list of air purifying plants. This list is part of the NASA Clean Air Study which is a research into the quality of the air in space stations. All plants absorb carbon dioxide and different kinds of harmful substances, and they release oxygen. The plants that are on the NASA list, however, remove significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene as well. There are micro-organisms in the soil that also contribute to the purification of the surrounding air.

For you this means that some of your plants might be busy removing harmful substances from the air in your home. Cigarette smoke, nasty smells from the kitchen, but also the little dust particles that are normally in the air. Buy one of the indoor plants listed below, and you are in fact getting yourself a biological air filter.

Spathiphyllum
Chlorophytum
Aglaonema
Philodendron
Dracaena
Ficus
Gerbera
Chrysanthemum
