These Plants Can Improve a Home’s Air Quality


A study 30 years ago by NASA reveals that certain houseplants can help clean the air to space stations, and studies since then have confirmed they may be able to do that for a home or office too. Further, studies have linked certain houseplants to an increase in productivity, calmness, creativity, and even a better night’s sleep.

NASA recommends placing up to 18 plants in an 1,800 square foot house to help purify the air.

  • Philodendron
