When we think of air pollution, we think about large cities, smog, and smoke, but indoor air pollution can also accumulate.  Lack of ventilation, toxic products, and humidity can make the air in your home polluted and stale. To keep our homes and lungs clear and clean, adding some natural air filters are a great idea. Fortunately, there are many varieties of houseplants which will add a lovely splash of nature to your home, benefit your lungs, and clear the air.  We have featured many articles on the multiple benefits of indoor greenery before, so this is a follow-up with a long list of easy to grow, mood-enhancing plant life. 

Bamboo palms are perfect, even if your home doesn’t receive a lot of natural light, and spider plants are hearty cleaners which will last even if you don’t have a green thumb. The golden pothos is a fast-growing plant, needs little water, absorbs CO2 and formaldehyde, and brings fresh air inside. If you crave a splash of color, Chrysanthemum and Azalea plants detoxify and produce beautiful blooms. For more suggestions, read on for houseplant ideas that will purify and beautify your home, and with 17 varieties on the list to choose from, there is something for everyone and every home.
