5 Plants to Grow Indoors for Cleaner Air

by Robyn Nasuti 07/07/2019

Many people spend most of their times indoors and don't pay attention to the quality of air that they breathe in. Some also do not consider the quality of the air as something important until it becomes an issue. According to the findings of NASA, indoor air pollutants form part of the top risks to public health.

Indoor air is sometimes stagnant with poor ventilation, and this gets neglected because it doesn't seem like an issue. Stale air can cause sickness or make you feel uncomfortable. Cleaning the air around the home can be done using a natural and easy method. The trick involved in improving the air quality of a home or office has to do with the use of houseplants. Some houseplants help to improve the air quality of our space.

Looking at the houseplants ordinarily, they seem like they are not doing anything, but they are performing an air-purifying function. They work at improving the quality of our air by taking in carbon dioxide and other particulates from the atmosphere and release the much-needed oxygen into the environment. Here are five plants that improve our health and wellness that also require little shade, water, and care: 

Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is an important, all-purpose plant that is easy to maintain. The plant thrives well, and its leaves can be used to treat wounds and sunburns. This plant can grow to about three feet without much demand for water – you can decide to water the plant once in a week or two, and it won't be adversely affected. 

Spider Plant

The Spider plant is ideal for those without green thumbs. It is one houseplant that is easy to grow and maintain. The plant thrives in bright and indirect light. It removes harmful formaldehyde as well as xylene from the atmosphere and keeps air fresh, especially where the ventilation is poor.
