It is known for a fact world-wide that plants are of extreme importance and value in our lives. Not only are they packed with nutrients, but they’re a natural air purified. The more plants we have around our home, the cleaner air we breathe, the less plants we have – the more exposed we are to toxins from the air.
Down below we’ve created a list of the best plants to have around your home, as they are a total oxygen-bomb and will always provide clean air. Check them out:
The fichus plant doesn’t require much sunlight and it is quite easy to maintain. It is highly efficient at cleaning formaldehyde from the air. However this plant can also be poisonous, so tend to keep it away from children and pets.
The Aloe plant can incredibly raise oxygen levels in the air. It absorbs carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and formaldehyde and purifies the air.
The spider-plant has an active photosynthesis system which works under minimal light. It also absorbs a lot of toxins from the air such as formaldehyde, gasoline, styrene and carbon monoxide and can purify the air in 200 square meters space.
