Indoor plants for your home & office! Below I have listed a few plants to help lift your energies and bring the outside into your home.
Orchids, rid the air of xylene
Spider plants & Boston Ferns are helpful in reducing geopathic stress
Orchids - too much water and sunlight can kill your orchids.
Orchids are ideal for anyone who recently moved into or renovated a new space. Orchids also respire and give off oxygen at night - so they're great for the bedroom. Orchids rid the air of xylene, a pollutant found in many glues and paints.
The Palm family of plants, also known as Arecaceae or Palmae, are extremely popular. These hardy houseplants are easy to grow and are a way to lift people’s energies, and are also known to be natural air purifiers. Palms help to remove formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide (which is especially helpful if someone in your household smokes cigarettes). ? Ferns are fascinating plants and help rid the air of pollutants like toulene and xylene, which are found in many paints, nail polishes and glues.
The Peace Lily, a.k.a. spathiphyllum is an ideal plant to have in your home if you love flowers. Spathiphyllum thrives in the shade in temperatures below 55 degrees and removes harmful toxins like acetone, ammonia, benzene, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde, methyl alcohol, trichloroethylene and xylene. Pothos is characterized by its golden heart-shaped leaves and is extremely popular in North America. It's a hardy plant that can survive in lower light and colder temps and is great for offices and homes since it rids the air of carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. Schefflera are easily recognizable because they have glossy, sturdy-looking oval leaves that almost look unreal because of their waxy shine. They're really hardy and long-lasting so they make great investment plants as long as you keep the leaves dust-free and wipe them down once in a while. In addition to looking great, they're also known to soak up nasty toxins like benzene, formaldehyde and toluene so, like palms, they're good for households where there's a smoker. Song of India (a.k.a. Dracaeana reflexa) are easy to grow in both high and low light and absorb undesirables like formaldehyde, toluene, xylene.
In the late '80s, NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America studied houseplants as a way to purify the air in space facilities. They found several plants that filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Plants can also help clean indoor air, which is typically far more polluted than outdoor air. Other studies have since been published in the Journal of American Society of Horticultural Science, further proving the science.
