According to NASA “house plants can purify and rejuvenate air within our houses and workplaces, safeguarding us all from any side effects connected with prevalent toxins such as formaldehyde, ammonia and also benzene.”

As I am still finishing my daughters bedroom remodel I am deciding which plants to put in her room. What bothers me most is the possible formaldehyde that could be in the air she breathes as she has floors. I came across a list of plants that have been proven to reduce VOC’s and other toxins in the air. I had to search the web for their images, because I wasn’t sure how do they all look like. They each have different abilities to reduce or completely remove some toxins from the air. So carefully research what you need most and then choose your plant.

I mainly need to remove Formaldehyde from newly remodeled room and of coarse remove VOC’s. I think I will go with number Janet Craig – Dracaena for its ability to reduce Formaldehyde and Chrysanthemum because its the only plant from the best air purifying plants that blooms.

“Make sure to Maintain your house plants in a good condition and make sure you have enough of them. The NASA research advised that there should be a six inch plant for every 100 sq feet of interior living space.”
