Most people know that having house plants is good for your home, but how are they good for your home? There are many benefits to having indoor plants including their ability to clean your air. With the right number of house plants you can breathe easier, enjoy improved health, and have a sharper focus.
Over the years NASA has conducted research into the best house plants for cleaning and purifying air. Some of the best include; Areca Palm, Pothos, Peace Lily, Chinese Evergreen, Philodendron, Dracaena, Weeping Fig, and the Rubber Plant. For a list of the best plants for cleaning your air click here. NASA recommends one plant, in a 6 inch (15 cm) or larger pot, per 100 square feet of household. So an 1,000 square foot home should have 10 small house plants.
