Air Purifying House Plant


These plants are especially good at being “air filters” which is great for someone with asthma, allergies, or just likes the idea...
1. Bamboo Palm: removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural 
humidifier.

2. Snake Plant: Found to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or 
impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing 
formaldahyde from the air.

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. 
Also known to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.

6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, 
they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more 
oxygen over night.
