Having a good quality of air inside the house is very important, especially since many of us spend much of our day locked in 4 walls. NASA conducted a study to discover which were the best plants to filter the air we breathe into our homes, offices and other establishments and, since we already published 5 of those effective indoor plants to purify the air previously, here we show another 6 of them.
According to NASA, common ivy is the number one indoor plant because of its incredible ability to filter the air. It is the most effective plant to absorb formaldehyde and is easy to care for. It is a plant that adapts, can remain hanging in a flowerpot or on the floor and prefers moderate temperatures and medium exposure to sunlight.
Tongue of Cow or Tiger
It is the perfect plant to put in a corner of your house and does not require much water or light. It is very efficient at absorbing carbon dioxide in the air and boosting oxygen at night – while other plants do so during the day. So it could be a good accessory for your bedroom.
With its heart-shaped leaves, the philodendron is a popular choice for indoor areas and are easy to maintain. Like ivy they are particularly efficient at the time of absorbing formaldehyde. If they are properly cared for they can last for many years. This plant prefers moderate water and a place with access to sunlight -not direct-.
Tape or Bad Mother
The tape is an easy maintenance plant and is a very popular indoor plant. Not only are they decorative, they are also on NASA’s list of the best purifying plants. It is effective in combating pollutants including benzene, formaldehyde, carbon dioxide and xylene.
The photos are a simple-looking plant that is also on the NASA list. It grows best in cold or cool environments and with little exposure to sunlight. It cleans the formaldehyde of the air and is a beneficial plant for your home that would look perfect in your living or living room in height, with its leaves hanging like waterfall.
This beautiful plant with very long and narrow leaves of dark green color with reddish brown edges can grow up to the ceiling (plants of 4.5 meters are usually common), therefore they can be a beautiful decoration for large rooms. It is very beneficial for the air inside your house since it removes toxins such as xylene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air. It is a very resistant plant that needs a clear place and supports a bit of direct light, but it fits perfectly in areas with sufficient lighting.
