Most people know that plants produce oxygen for us to breathe, but what exactly are the benefits of having plants in your home?
One of the most important advantages is the ability for houseplants to clean your air. With an abundance of indoor plants you can breathe easier, enjoy improved health, and have a sharper focus.
Over the years NASA has conducted research into the best houseplants for cleaning and purifying air. 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.
