Clean your home’s air

We all know that plants in our home release oxygen. But few of us know that they are able to clean the air of mould and toxins which is great for health.

By including these plants in your home not only will you increase oxygen production but you will also add ambiance to your surroundings.

Aloe
This plant is great for increasing the oxygen level in the home because it absorbs the carbon dioxide, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. Nine air purifiers can be replaced with one Aloe Vera plant.

Ficus
This plant doesn’t need a lot of light and you can maintain it easily. It is quite effective in purifying the air of formaldehyde. But avoid it if you have pets or small children because its leaves may be poisonous.

Ivy
This is a must-have herb. If you buy this plant, within six hours it will remove 58 per cent of faecal particles and 60 per cent of the toxins in the air.

Spider plant
This plant is amazing as it is able to perform photosynthesis under minimal light. It is great in absorbing toxins from the air as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, gasoline and styrene. One plant is enough to clean the air in a 200 square metres space.

Snake planet
