When it comes to plants I’m pretty much clueless. I can hardly remember to drink water myself, let alone water a plant frequently. But despite my lack of a green-thumb I absolutely love the ambiance plants bring to your home, and I especially love the fact that so many can help to clean your air!

Here is a list of a few houseplants that are generally hard to kill, and help keep toxins out of the air you’re breathing each day…

Snake Plant AKA Mother In Law’s Tongue:
Okay, why would anyone ever want to call this a Snake Plant when Mother In Law’s Tongue is the alternative?! I want this plant for that reason alone. Oh, and also because it’s an extremely hardy plant that would be hard to kill even if you tried. And it takes care of benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene. What more could you ask for?

Spider Plant:
I love these guys. They’re so easy to care for, too. Just keep them in a room where they can receive bright indirect sunlight and they can help rid your home of formaldehyde and xylene!

Garden Mum:
These pretty flowering plants help keep ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene out of the air you’re breathing. Woo hoo!

Ficus:
These babies can grow to be anywhere from 2 to 10 feet tall! They’re a unique-looking plant, a very easy plant to care for AND they’re a real threat to benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene.

Peace Lily:
I love flowering plants that will still bloom indoors. The Peace Lily is a real air-cleaning champ, helping to get rid of ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene without asking much of you; simply keep them in a shady spot and keep the soil moist.

Do you have any of these plants? Let me know if they really are easy to care for!
