Living in a modern building can have unintended side effects. One of these side effects is less air flow. Lack of air flow allows for indoor air pollution to build up and cause health issues like asthma.

Choosing the right air purifying plants for your home can detoxify the air in your living spaces. They not only look lovely but also clean the air you breathe in.

Here is the list of air purifying plants

Snake plant

Snake plant also known as Mother-in-Law’s Tongue is a succulent plant that can grow up to two meters in height. It is a low maintenance plant. Place them in somewhere with direct light for a couple of hours a day. Be careful not to overwater as they thrive in dry conditions.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is known for their anti-inflammatory properties repairing wounds and sunburn. But it is a great air purifier too. They thrive in warm well-lit rooms.

English Ivy

English Ivy is the number one indoor houseplant when it comes to its air purifiers. They grow well in small pots and prefer to be crowded. They look great in hanging baskets and can even propagate a cutting in water in just a few days.

Spider Plant

Spider plant prevents toxins including carbon monoxide and xylene, a solvent used in the printing and rubber industries. This plant is nontoxic to animals too.

Ficus or Weeping Fig

Ficus grows indoors and can eventually reach 10 feet. Grow this low-maintenance plant in bright, indirect light, and allow the soil to dry out between watering.
