Plants improve the air quality in the living room, as they clean the air of toxins and mold. In fact, if you want to create a perfect living environment in your home, be sure to have an aloe plant, which raises the level of oxygen in a living room.
The aloe plant purifies the body and spirit. It absorbs carbon dioxide, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide. Actually, one aloe plant has the effect of nine biological air purifiers in cans!
Besides Aloe Vera, you can also use ficus, which is an easy-to-maintain plant that doesn’t require plenty of light. It is effective in cleaning the air of formaldehyde. However, it is not recommended for areas frequented by children and pets as its leaves are poisonous.
Ivy is another great plant, which eliminates up to 60% of toxins from the air as well as 58% of the particles of feces within only six hours. On the other hand, green lily has the ability to carry out photosynthesis under minimal light. It absorbs toxins such as styrene, gasoline, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide from the air.
Another plant that is great for your house is the highly resistant Estragon (grass snake). It needs minimal light for photosynthesis and is ideal for the bedroom, as it produces oxygen at night.
Lillies are also great for removing chemical toxins from the air. Namely, they filter trichlorethylene and formaldehyde from the air.
According to NASA, every household needs to have 15-18 listed plants on a 500 square meters space, and this must include the bedroom.
