Air Purifying House Plants

I saw this on Facebook being shared by a lot of people for information. I thought of sharing it here too so you all will know. I am lucky for I have one of those air purifying house plants shown in the picture below. I got the number two plant called Snake Plant not just one pot but four of them. I am just happy I don't have to be looking around for it for it already is in our home.

1. Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier. 

2. Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air. 

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene. 

6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night. If you can't even put a plant in your living room because you say it is too much trouble, then you need to die and wait for the other life to bring sense in your spirits!!!
