Purify In-Home Air Using Plants And Flowers

While an air purifier can do some of the work of making the air around you at home or work a little fresher and purer, plants can do a much better job of filtering the air than a machine, plus they do it more quietly and without using up energy from your power plant. And they are pleasant to look at and provide us with a sense of nature close to us each day. Why not give them a try to see if you can sense the benefits?

Anthurium Andraeanum

Alternatively called Flamingo Lily or Lace Leaf, Anthurium Andraeanum is one of the most beautiful and desirable houseplants. Large, flat, glossy leaves complement luscious, bright flower heads. Too good to be honest, Andraeanum is easy to be mistaken for plastic.

“Mother-In-Law’s Tongue”

English Ivy

This household botanical is famed for its killing effect on airborne molds and formaldehyde. It is one of the strongest air-purifying perennials to filter the toxins from your spaces. You can grow ivy in a small pot, but it will look its best when planted in hanging planters or unique floral baskets.


These lovely woody trees may be pretty inconsistent in care and not tolerate sudden changes in watering, placement, or nourishment. But once it adapts to the environment, Ficus will seamlessly sanitize the air around it. This fig tree is effective at ridding the air of formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. The plant needs bright indirect natural light and consistent watering to keep going on.
