Did you know that indoor plants have many proven health benefits?

While all plants take in carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, they also act as natural humidifiers and can remove some harmful chemicals from the air around us.

While we already know that just having a plant around can boost our mood and even reduced allergies when they bring plants into their homes. To figure out exactly why these plants are so beneficial, NASA performed an experiment to see which plants were most effective at removing several common indoor air pollutants

Here’s our top favourites from the Air Quality NASA study

ANTHERIUM

Anthurium

The beautiful Anthurium andraeanum has a classic lily look and brilliant red or pink blooms. They like areas without drafts with lots of bright indirect sunlight. Water the lily regularly and thoroughly.

Flamingo Lilies will filter toxins out of your environments, but are toxic to pets, so keep them well out of reach when you can’t supervise your pets.

pothos

Pothos

The beautiful green spotted leaves of Golden Pothos are toxic to pets, so keep the plant well out of reach of dogs and cats.

Pothos likes indirect sunlight and needs to be kept moist–it is not a drought-resistant plant.

peace lily

Peace Lily

Beautiful peace lilies, or Spathiphyllum wallisii, are great air filterers, removing benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and ammonia from your environment–every single chemical tested in the NASA study!

Peace lilies love medium to low light–if you want your lily to produce more flowers, place it in more light. Plants in low light will look more like a typical foliage plant. Just keep it out of reach of pets, as it’s toxic to cats and dogs.

Dracaena

Dracaena

The dragon tree, or Dracaena marginata, is a low-maintenance houseplant with striped narrow leaves. It can grow up to 10-15 feet in height with care and time. Be careful not to over-water.

Dragon trees love moderate to bright indirect sunlight. You’ll know if your plant is getting too much light if brown spots appear on the leaves. Dracaena are toxic to pets.

spider plant

Spider Plant

Spider plants, or Chlorophytum comosun. The arching leaves and small white flowers make this a great plant for hanging baskets.

Spider plants like partial sun and need to be kept moist during the spring and summer.

Variegated Snake Plant

Variegated Snake Plant

Also known as ‘Mother-in-Law’s Tongue’ Sansevieria trafasciata ‘Laurentii’ is a succulent that has distinct long, pointed leaves that stand upright. It’s typically a rich green but can have yellowed edges.

Snake plants are toxic to pets. Like with other succulents, water snake plants sparingly. Allowing them to sit in water will rot the plant.

Weeping Fig

Weeping Fig

Ficus benjamina loves bright light and lots of water, although it will need to dry out slightly between watering’s. The plant is popular with growers, who may braid the trunks or bonsai it to give it a decorative look.

The weeping fig is toxic to pets.

English Ivy

English Ivy

English Ivy, or Hedera helix.

English ivy is a beautiful accent plant that looks great in a dish garden or as a hanging plant. It will only climb as high as you allow, and loves bright, but indirect sunlight.

Kimberley Queen Fern

Kimberley Queen Fern

Nephrolepis obliterata is a non-toxic fern that doesn’t shed and leave a mess, so it’s a great indoor plant. It loves bright indirect sunlight.

The fronds will turn a pale green when your plant is thirsty.

Moth Orchid

Moth Orchid

Phalanopsis Orchids, are beautiful additions to any space. Orchids are non-toxic to pets, so they are safe to leave unsupervised.

Orchids are usually planted in bark and must be allowed to dry out between waterings. They like bright, but indirect sunlight.
