To your health: Houseplants for clean air

If houseplants were running for public office, they’d have a great built-in platform. Who doesn’t want clean air? Indoor environments like well-sealed houses and office spaces can have unhealthy levels of pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene, and plants help to remove them. Plan to add fifteen to eighteen good-sized houseplants for a typical 1,800-square-foot house for best results. Most plants are great for increased air quality, but several top the list:

Sansevieria: Also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, sansevieria (Sansevieria trifasciata) is one of the easiest houseplants. In fact, the quickest way to kill it is to give it too much attention. This plant features upright, stiff, swordlike foliage and only requires water every few weeks.

English Ivy: Hedera helix is one of the most widely used houseplants; it’s that easy ivy that’s hard to kill. If you can water it at least once a week and keep an eye out for mites, this plant is a great trailing addition to hanging planters.

Peace Lily: Spathiphyllum ‘Mauna Loa’ is a gorgeous houseplant that features glossy dark green leaves and exotic-looking white flowers. Give it regular water and light fertilizer, and remove the spent flowers.
