Houseplants are often overlooked as an excellent source for removing pollutants, toxins and off-gassing (chemical). Plus they contribute to a balanced internal humidity in your home.

It has been suggested that one plant should be allowed 10 square yards of floor space, assuming your ceiling height is 8-9 feet. This means 2 or 3 plants are required to increase the air quality in an average domestic living room.

Research has shown that these 10 plants are the most effective all-around plants to counteract off-gassing chemicals and balancing internal humidity. Who knew?
