Indoor Plants That Will Shape Up Your Indoor Quality Of Air

By Cornelius Nunev

If you're seeking to improve your house's indoor quality of air, do not dump cash into electronics! Try one of these affordable indoor plants.

Getting the Snake plant to help you

With the Snake plant you can clean your air of any benzene, toluene, xylene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde. The plant costs between $15 and $70 depending on its size and can convert CO2 into oxygen through the night. That makes it great for the bedroom. The plant has many smooth, snake-like tendrils on it.

You can get Devil's Ivy too

To stay away from formaldehyde, xylene, toluene, benzene and trichloroethylene, you can get Devil's Ivy for around $15.

Trying out Florist's Chrysanthemum

Florist's Chrysanthemum (aka Pot Mum) is cheap at under $5, but that's for the seeds, as the plant is hard to find in stores already potted. The Chrysanthemum flowers are attractive, and the plant screens out formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, ammonia and benzene.

Try out Peace Lily

Get a pretty Peace Lily for anywhere between $35 and $50. It will get rid of toluene, ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.

Pick out the Red-Edged Dracaena

Avoid Xylene, Toluene, benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene with this plant that will cost around $35.

Some like the Areca Palm

This heavy oxygen-producer is big, but will fit well on the family room floor. Be ready to pay around $45 for this xylene- and toluene-killer. You now have read about the plants we consider to be the best for indoor air quality. Have you tried any of these plants? Are there any we should add to this list?
