Welcome indoor plants home. Improve indoor air quality naturally.

While humans mindlessly cause and create indoor air pollution, nature thinks differently. There are certain indoor plants (approved by NASA) that can provide a healthy environment for your baby and family. They work as natural filters and absorb various chemicals and gases floating inside your house. What’s more, they are easy to maintain and grow.

“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  indoor plants filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Lucky for us the 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.”

    I have a Peace Lily in the house but there is just so much dust (and who knows what else) in the air that I am considering getting my second air purifier. My first is doing a decent job but I need another one just because the house is big and this one can’t purify it all. Should I get another one or maybe add a few more plants first and see what happens? I’m thinking about the Dwarf Date Palm, the English Ivy and maybe one or two Kimberly Queen Ferns. What is your opinion?

      Sorry for the delay. To give you the best advise, we would like to know a few facts. Do you live in a city or a village? When you say dust – do you mean fine dust (PM 2.5) or coarse dust (PM 10)? Also, when it comes to maintaining optimal indoor air quality, it is always better to tackle the source of the pollutant rather than purifying air. Purifying air is just a temporary solution.
