The Best Indoor Plants for Your Home

Houseplants can play a dual role in your home. Not only do they add a “living” element to indoor spaces, many of them can help purify the air. Results of the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA and the Associated Landscape Contractors of America concluded that the following houseplants had the best air filtering capabilities.

  • Aloe (Aloe Vera)
    The gel inside of the leaves can be used to help soothe and heal cuts and burns.
  • Bamboo Palm (Chamaedorea sefritzii)
    Thrives in shady indoor spaces
  • Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema crispum 'Deborah')
    Produces blooms and red berries even in low light conditions.
  • English Ivy (Hedera helix)
    Graceful, trailing plant thrives in bright light.
  • Golden Pothos (Scindapsus aures)
    Fast growing vine. Ideal for a hanging basket.
  • Heart Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron oxycardium)
    Climbing vine. Not recommended for houseseholds with children or pets because of its toxicity when ingested.
  • Mother-in-Law's Tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata 'Laurentii')
    Grows well in low light and likes humid conditions – perfect for a bathroom.
  • Peace lily (Spathiphyllum)
    Shade and humidity loving plant produces striking blooms.
  • Red-edged dracaena (Dracaena marginata)
    Narrow pointed green leaves with red to purple stripes along the outer edge.

    Easy care, resilient plant.

    Easily grown indoors, even without direct sunlight.
