STYLE - House Plants

As I get older, nothing excites me more than buying things to decorate the house or a new household appliance. Don't get me wrong, I still love to shop for clothes, shoes, accessories, and handbags, but lately, my trips to TJ Max and Ross have been for household gadgets. I find that many of my friends are in the same boat and thought this article prepared by Live in the Now would be put to good use. Living in a rented apartment, you're limited to the kind of decorations you hang on the walls or adjust to the structure of the place. That's where plants come in. Plants allow you to exercise your domesticated self and it's not a permanent fixture.

In the article, NASA provides good insight to the natural air purifiers and improve air quality. Do you have any of these plants in your home? Maybe this is something to consider when purchasing your next plant or home decor. Happy reading!


1. Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.

2. Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air.

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also known to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.

6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.
