Planting trees on the roadsides is a smart idea, but having them inside your living space is even better. Rugs, curtains, and bed sheets that seemingly look spick-and-span may be hiding lots of dust under them.
A safe and easy way to filter and purify your indoor space is to keep houseplants.
Many houseplants are low-maintenance, making them idle for people who are mostly out and busy. The following plants will not only give you a lovely green space but are also easy to look after.
1. Snake Plant
The Snake Plant works its magic in the night. It is perfect to place in the corners of your home, as it needs minimal water and light. At dark, it releases oxygen while absorbing all the carbon dioxide, assuring a restful, healthy sleep.
2. Rubber Plant
Rubber plants are quite effective in removing formaldehyde – an irritant present in household products- from the air. They’re very good at tolerating low temperatures and survive well in moderate sunlight and shade. Be careful as exposing them to direct sunlight can destroy them.
3. English Ivy
English Ivy is a NASA-approved houseplant that works incredibly well at absorbing toxins from your space. You don’t really have to look after it, just maintaining basic light and water is good enough. Also, because they’re floor plants, they are ideal for home décor.
4. Peace Lily
Peace lilies, as air-purifiers, work well in cooler temperatures. They also bloom flowers every now and then giving your house a bright look. However, people with pets should stay wary, as these plants can be poisonous.
5. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is amazing for filtering out harmful chemicals in cleaning products. By showing brown spots on its leaves, it can help you detect if there are too many chemicals in the air.
For people who are mostly busy and out, these plants are ideal and convenient. We hope you plant at least two from the list!
