Devil's Ivy

Even as the weather warms up and a walk in the fresh air looks inviting, the majority of the country must remain indoors to make a living.

Other than missing out on precious vitamin D, indoor workers are subject to common indoor air pollutants such as off-gas noxious chemicals and toxic paint fumes.

Fortunately, the following household plants are experts at absorbing hazardous chemicals in the air while creating a green indoor environment.

Devil's Ivy - Epipremnum aureum. Not to be frightened by the name, Devil’s Ivy is an evergreen vine that requires little care while protecting from formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene.

Peace Lily - Spathiphyllum. This flowered plant does not need a lot of sun or water to survive while it protects from pollutants.

Snake Plant - Sansevieria trifasciata. Also called Mother-In-Law’s Tongue, the Snake Plant is native to West Africa and is an air quality expert that can go a few months during the winter without water.

Red-Edged Dracaena - Dracaena reflexa. This plant also requires little attention while ridding the air of formaldehyde, xylene and trichloroethylene.
